  • New Study Says Canadians Are 'Netflix Cheaters,' Binge-Watching 'Stranger Things' Behind Their Partners' Backs

Many of us have heard the phrase "Netflix and chill" but what about "Netflix and cheat?"

Approximately 46 percent of couples who stream TV shows together admitted to "cheating", or skipping ahead of their significant other on shows they watch together, according to a study the streaming-service released on Monday. In fact, almost half of all couples that stream shows together have admitted to it.

There's a good chance your significant other is binge-watching "Stranger Things" when you're not around. Four years later, cheating has increased three times and has become a common behaviour around the world.

Most respondents plan to keep doing it, and 63 percent say they'd do it more if they knew they could get away with it. And once you cheat, you can't stop: 81% of cheaters are repeat offenders and 44% have cheated 3+ times.

The "cheating" is rampant and not contained to any particular show, according to the study. The streaming company said the survey was "balanced by age and gender" and "representative of an adult online population who watch TV shows via streaming services as a couple" in various countries throughout the world.

Netflix says the cheating trend has been on the rise since 2013. That would be "The Walking Dead", "Orange is the New Black", "Breaking Bad", "House of Cards" and Marvel's "Daredevil". The biggest culprits were Brazil (57%) and Mexico (58%), while Netherlands was the most loyal with only 27%. That's when you've agreed to watch a show on Netflix with someone else but go and sneak ahead without them.

Netflix's study was conducted by SurveyMonkey from December 20-31, 2016 and was based on 30,267 total responses.
