Turns out streaming fast is a new status symbol.

In comparing audiences from around the world, Netflix found Aussies rank at number eight on the top binge-watching countries.

Netflix defined binge racing in a press release as "accomplishing in just 24 hours what might take others weeks or months to complete, Binge Racers take serious pride in being among the first to finish a new season".


According to Netflix, Binge Racing behaviour has grown from 200,000 members in 2013 to more than 5 million in 2017. "Netflix allows you to watch in a way you never could before, and there's nothing better than seeing a show engage our members and ignite a passion for viewing", said VP original series Brian Wright. These viewers love to take in a show's story as a whole, by watching all the episodes of an entire season, for example, all in succession and in one sitting. But exactly where Binge Racers live (hint: everywhere) and what they're watching (hint: everything) may surprise you.

The kinds of shows most-commonly binge-watched like this range from comedies like Master of None and Dear White People to longer fare like Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and Stranger Things.

The clip shows the two actors celebrating the fact that The Ranch is the third-most "binge-raced" show on the streaming platform, behind only Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and Fuller House. Their binge of choice?
