Now Streaming: My ‘One Month of Netflix’ Experiment

by | Jun 30, 2015 | Productivity Experiments

Takeaway: During my One Month of Netflix experiment, I’m tracking how many hours of Netflix I watch, exactly what I watch, how much I spend on takeout, how much bandwidth I consume, and more—all on this page.

Estimated Reading Time: 43 seconds.

For the entire month of July I’m conducting a productivity experiment: alternating between watching Netflix for an entire day, and then trying to get as much work done as possible the next, to see what impact relaxing and vegging out has on my productivity—if any at all.

This article will chronicle my progress in the experiment—particularly the Netflix side of it. Below, you’ll find the total number of hours I’ve spent watching Netflix, what I’ve watched, how many gigabytes of bandwidth I’ve consumed, and even how much money I’ve blown on takeout during the experiment. (What’s Netflix without a little takeout, right?) There’s also a form to suggest shows, movies, and documentaries for me to watch, should you feel so inclined.

As I usually do, when all is said and done, I’ll piece together a few articles on everything I learned during the experiment—especially as far as productivity is concerned.

This is going to be fun.
