Netflix reveals when shows hook in viewers

Netflix's Australian viewers take a little longer to get hooked on a TV show compared with the rest of the world, according to new data released by the streaming service.

The episode that hooks viewers in and keeps at least 70 per cent of them watching until the end of the season has been identified in several of the shows streamed on Netflix, including this year's runaway hit Stranger Things.

But it wasn't the first episode in any case that kept people watching.

The episode that took people from casual to committed viewers was frequently the third or fourth episode, and in most cases Australia was one episode behind the rest of the world.

Australian audiences are clearly a little harder to please.

A hooked episode was defined when 70 per cent of viewers who watched that episode went on to complete season one of the same series.
