Whether you are a binge-watcher or love to savour your shows we all have been known to cheat. Watch an episode when your partner is out. Promise to wait to start a series till you can get all your girls together. Or, start watching a series your kids are excited about before them. Right? Please say I’m not the only Netflix cheater?
Turns out I am definitely not alone. Lots of you cheat! Whether you ever admit it to your Netflix partner or not it’s too hard to resist just one more episode, just a little taste of a new show or an old favourite. If you are new to cheating or a seasoned professional we have some great tips on how to cover your tracks:
Make sure you work on your apology. As Queen Elizabeth does:
If you’re a Netflix cheater you aren’t alone. 46% of global viewers admit to cheating with their favourite shows. How do Canadians stack up against their neighbours around the world? Turns out we are a little less polite than you may think, with over a third (37%) of couples streaming behind each other’s backs. While I definitely don’t equate Netflix cheating with having an affair, to some it is a major relationship offence. When are you most vulnerable – “After you fall asleep” This is just an awesome reason. “Sorry honey, you fell asleep and I was just captivated!” Do you think this would work? Fess up – when do you become a Netflix cheater? When your partner is at work, away, or when they fall asleep?
Now that we’ve worked on covering our tracks and making an apology let’s talk about what shows are our favourites as a Netflix Cheater.
Which shows do you love to cheat on?
