People Spend 187 Hours A Year Searching For Something To Watch On Netflix

For many of us, life since March has involved A LOT more TV than usual. It's not really surprising then, that the average Brit will spend 187 hours a year searching for something to watch on Netflix.

New research has found that finding something suitable to watch has been that much of a stress that it's actually been the cause of tension in the household.

In fact - people have been that indecisive about to what to watch that the average Brit has had an argument three times a week over it.

The research also found that 42 percent of those surveyed get annoyed when other people in the house 'double-screen' - that means watch TV while on their phone, laptop or tablet. I feel attacked.

And, while in the state of stream-induced purgatory, it turns out that we spend 187 hours - that's eight days a year - looking for something that tickles their fancy on the box.

With more than 76 percent of people admitting that they're now bored of streaming sites - they say they have 'content fatigue' - you'll be well up for a trip to the cinema.

With Tenet being released in Odeon cinemas on 26 August, it's not going to be long before you can enjoy the next blockbuster in the safe darkness of the pictures.

Carol Welch, Managing Director UK & IRE said "At home entertainment has played a huge part in our lives this year but after spending hours making do with a small screen, we're looking forward to welcoming guests back to the real deal.

"Those who are tired of big cat kings or double screening can rest assured they can escape to the big screen and immersive entertainment at ODEON."

Christopher Nolan's new sci-fi thriller Tenet will be released internationally on 26 August before opening in selected cities in North America on 3 September. You can watch the trailer here:

The movie will be dropping in 70 international territories, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United Kingdom, according to Variety.

Warner Bros. Pictures told the publication that Tenet could premiere overseas before opening in the US, this is believed to be down to the fact that international markets are beginning to reopen safely.
