Someone in the UK watched 'Bee Movie' 357 times in 2017

  • One anonymous Netflix user watched the DreamWorks film “Bee Movie” almost once a day for a year.
  • Yes, really.

We all fall victim to a day on the sofa in front of Netflix every now and again.

But one unidentified Netflix subscriber caused a buzz when they took a movie binge to the next level.

In Netflix’s 2017 “Year in Review,” the online streaming platform revealed that one UK user watched the 2007 DreamWorks classic “Bee Movie” 357 times this year. That works out at almost once a day, or 23.5 days of non-stop streaming.

“Bee Movie” follows the trials and tribulations of Barry the Bee (Jerry Seinfeld), who finds the prospect of working in a hive all his life uninspiring. Barry’s world is turned upside down when he meets a New York florist and decides to sue the human race for eating the bees’ honey.

Netflix found the average UK member only watched around 60 films on the website in 2017.

The American entertainment company honey-combed through mountains of data from November 1, 2016, to November 1, 2017, to work out the most streamed, binged, and loved shows of the year.

But this streamer’s bee obsession wasn’t the only unbelievable fact in Netflix’s report.

The review also found that subscribers around the world collectively watched more than 140 million hours of Netflix a day in 2017 – amounting to over a billion hours a week.
