Netflix released a study on Tuesday that shows bingeing in public is on the rise with 71% Indians watching more entertainment in a public place than a year ago.

New data on national streaming habits has revealed Australians will stop at nothing to get their TV fix, even taking their binge-watching habits into public toilets and cutting back on groceries to cover subscription fees.

Yes, we actually use the streaming site that aggressively but I mean, we do have 10 Seasons of Friends to rewatch for the umpteenth time.

Data from a global Netflix survey, of 1900 Australian respondents, found a surprising number of us are watching Netflix content in a public toilet.

Some of the viewing habits might catch you by surprise: 37 percent admitted to watching at work, 22 percent said they'd cried while streaming in public, and 12 percent copped to Netflixing in public bathrooms. One in two Indians claimed in the survey that a stranger started a conversation with them over the series/movie that they were watching.

A study released Tuesday from Netflix revealed that 67% of people globally, or 2 out of every 3 persons worldwide, are willing to risk showing their emotions if it means being able to watch their favorite shows and movies outside of their home, Entertainment Weekly reports.

In fact, access to movies and TV shows is among the top five travel essentials (44 per cent people voted for the access), along with WiFi (48 per cent) and a comfortable seat (49 per cent), a charger (41 per cent) and food (37 per cent). And it's not just for those alone moments too - you might be in the back of a vehicle with someone and they're watching Netflix because 45% of those watching in the back seat of a auto have caught someone looking over their shoulder too.
