Netflix releases binge-watching behavior chart

Netflix, which is notably recalcitrant to reveal its subscribers' precise viewing behaviors, watch times, or other statistics, untied the strings on its data to reveal a little bit more about binge-watching habits.

In a blog post on its site, the SVOD provider posted its "Binge Scale," which reveals how its subscribers consume original content -- either "devouring" it by watching more than two hours of a series at a time, or "savoring" it by spending less than two hours with the content.

For example, viewers tend to want to savor "irreverent comedies" like Bojack Horseman and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, while they settle back and burn through "thrillers" like Bates Motel and Sons of Anarchy. Check out Netflix's colorful scale here.
