In 2017, Netflix users around the globe consumed more than 140 million hours of Netflix per day, the streaming service announced in a news release Monday.

The company identified the year’s notable global trends about what users watched.

Netflix also split consumer habits for TV shows into four categories: “the shows we devoured” for the most-watched shows for more than two hours per day, “the shows we savored” for the most-watched shows for less than two hours per day, “the shows that got us cheating” for the most shamelessly watched ahead of a significant other, and “the shows that brought us together” for the most-watched shows seen together as a family.

The service uncovered the numbers by analyzing average daily viewing hours per member between Nov. 1, 2016, and Nov. 1, 2017. The data only included new Netflix original shows that launched between those dates.

Results for the third and fourth categories are based on more than 60,000 survey responses from Netflix members between Oct. 24-30, 2017. According to Netflix, the sample is representative of adults watching TV shows as a couple with their families in 32 countries.
