We’ve become a binge watch nation.
Did you know that about 45% of American households subscribe to an online streaming service like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon? That’s according to Nielsen, the company that used to measure the number of hours Americans watched television shows. And before that, they measured how much radio exposure we were getting.
That’s a lot of streaming. (And, we aren’t sure if they took into account the fact that many homes are using shared accounts. Meaning, one person pays, and three other family members and friends get free access.)
We’re also a bunch of cord cutters. Every day, thousands of Americans decide no more paying for cable channels they don’t want.
So, what shows are people in Indiana binge watching right now? Since Netflix, Hulu and Amazon don’t release the exact results on a state-by-state basis, we simply had to turn to Google Trends to see which programs are being Googled the most in the Hoosier State. The results? Interesting.
Many things stand out. For instance, people in Gary are most interested in Empire, the FOX show about the music industry. Folks in Zionsville are apparently watching House Of Cards more than anyone else in Indiana.
Are the people in South Bend just now discovering “Friday Night Lights?” It’s like they’re 10 years behind the rest of Indiana. That’s okay, at least they’re finally getting to it. And what about Mishawaka’s interest in “Star Trek?”
