Netflix bandwidth usage

Bandwidth is the last thing on our mind when using the Internet. We watch a video or download a photo, and never think about the fact there’s a a huge flow of data behind it that people are using. An even bigger concept is the data flow of the entirety of the Internet. That’s so much data and bandwidth that it’s almost impossible to fathom.

So what’s even crazier than the bandwidth figures for the entire Internet? How much of it Netflix uses. A new study revealed that, at peak hours during March 2015 in North America, Netflix accounted for up to 37% of all Internet usage. That’s over a third of data flowing through the Internet.

Daredevil credits mash-up

Everyone loves binge-watching shows on Netflix. But the problem with watching an entire season of any show in a week or two is that the window for people to talk about that show comes and goes very quickly. For example, even though Netflix premiered the new Marvel Studios series Daredevil just last month, no one is really talking about it anymore.

However, that’s not stopping the internet from getting into mash-up mode by giving Daredevil a couple new opening credits sequences. The first is a goofy little remix that uses the opening credits style of the comedy Night Court. But the second one done in the style of Law & Order feels much more appropriate and fits right with the vibe of the show.

Olsen Twins in Fuller House

Back in April, a big chunk of 90s nostalgia was announced to be revived when we learned Netflix had ordered Fuller House, a television series sequel to the hit sitcom Full House. Pretty much everyone from the original series was confirmed to come back in some capacity for this new series, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While producers had hoped that the duo responsible for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the family, would make an appearance, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.

Netflix ratings

One of the great mysteries of Netflix is how many people are watching. We know there are over 40 million domestic subscribers, but what those people are actually watching, and when, is something only the company itself knows. Netflix does not share ratings data. As streaming becomes more and more prominent, however, ratings are something many people are curious about. Now one company is offering up data on how many people are watching stuff on Netflix… with a major caveat.

A San Diego-based company called Luth Research has put together a large sample of test subjects (about 2,500) that allows them to gauge what and when people are watching on Netflix. Their research, however, only accounts for people who are watching directly on Netflix, meaning on your computer, phone or tablet. Anyone watching through another service – a gaming system, an internet-enabled TV, a Roku – is not counted.

So what were the results? Below, find out the rough first Netflix ratings for Daredevil, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bloodline and more. Read More »
