Half of Netflix Subscribers Watched an Original Holiday Movie Last Year

I assume this means my child wasn’t the only child with The Christmas Chronicles on repeat.

Netflix says about half of their subscribers watched one of their original holiday movies last year. At the time they had 167 million subscribers so that would mean about 84 million of us were watching that nonsense. Keep in mind, though, you only have to watch something for two minutes for Netflix to count it as a view so that could have just been 84 million of us watching two minutes of The Christmas Chronicles before saying “NOPE”.

In an attempt to lure us in again this year, Netflix is gifting us with seven new original holiday movies, including Holidate with Emma Roberts, Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square, and The Christmas Chronicles Part 2 with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Guess which one I’m excited about.
