The Most Re-Watched Box Sets Since Lockdown Began!

What did you binge-watch during a lockdown?

The research was just released which show a huge increase in the amount of streaming and downloading during the pandemic, with re-bingeing box sets being one of the main drivers.


During the lockdown, which started on 23 March 2020, there was a 40 per cent increase in internet data usage, driven by schools shutting and adults moving to home-working.


According to a survey of 2000 adults, the top TV series that were binge-watched included Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones, Friends and Downton Abbey.

The research found that 6:30 pm was the peak time to binge-watch TV, but one-quarter of adults admitted they had tuned in to their favourite show before 11 am.


And six in 10 even said that that spending hours in front of their favourites has helped them get through the various restrictions of the pandemic – with four episodes in a row being the most they are likely to watch.


Three in 10 of those polled via OnePoll even admitted to guiltily watching their favourite shows during the daytime – when they should have been working.
