Since the advent of the Netflix Instant queue, folks have been drawn to certain movies and shows for repeated viewings. After all, what good is a library that includes shows like Friends and movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 if you're not able to flip them on in the background several times during a calendar year? But someone has taken their love of an old standby pretty far, as a user has been reported to have streamed Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl for 365 days straight, a.k.a. a full year.
This is one of the many statistics that Netflix has released to the public as part of their year end analysis of people's streaming habits. One of the pieces of data that stuck out to the streaming giant is the fact that for 365 days in a row one unnamed user set aside at least 2 hours and 22 minutes of their day to enjoy the first big screen adventure featuring Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann. There's fans, there's super fans, and then there's this mysterious maven of moviedom.
Some of the other facts that Netflix has released to the public put this pattern into perspective. For instance, the average Netflix viewer has seen 60 films courtesy of their services this year. 140 million hours were logged per day, with 1 billion hours of activity per week - which leads to a pretty impressive portrait of the audience that they're attracting with their content. And yet, in this immense universe of data, one outlier stands out, colors hoisted, and ready to take everything and give nothing back when it comes to Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, once every 24 hours.
Usually, the conversation with content providers is centered on what they have to offer to their viewers, as well as what's leaving their libraries. Be it exclusive productions they've produced or acquired, or a cherry deal landing some sweet re-run bait, everyone likes to talk about what's on. But now it seems that the conversation is starting to split off into a new topic: what viewers are watching. This isn't the first time that Netflix has called out its viewing population's habits, and it certainly won't be the last. Especially if the user being covered in this story continues their streak of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl viewing into their second consecutive year.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl is available on Netflix streaming. Just in case you find yourself craving a quick view or two... or 365.
