Hugh: NLers are the Fourth Biggest TV Binge Watchers in Canada
Written by Hugh Campbell on November 24, 2022
How often do you like to have a lazy evening where you just plant yourself on the couch and watch multiple episodes of your new favourite show? Well, if you’re like many people in our province, it happens pretty regularly. In a recent Time2Play survey that set out to find out which provinces in Canada binge-watch the most TV, Newfoundland and Labrador came in fourth. The survey asked 1,000 Canadians on average, how many days it takes them to watch through a ten-episode series with 45-minute episodes. When you take a look at the results, it’s clear there’s something about Atlantic Canada that lends itself well to powering through Netflix shows. Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island tied for first, as it took them both an average of 4.3 days to get through a season. British Columbia came next at 5 days, followed by Newfoundland and Labrador as well as New Brunswick tied at an even 6. The province that does the least binge-watching is Saskatchewan, as it takes them an average of 7.7 days to watch through a 10-episode season.
