Netflix has become popular in India and binge-watching series have become rather common for those who have almost given up on traditional TV. While TV gave not much choice but to sit together at a particular time to watch your favorite show, Netflix lets you watch shows anywhere, anytime and even on the go therefore watching a TV show ahead of your significant other has become rather common. While the most cheaters in Asia are in Hong Kong (59%) and India (46%), the most loyal viewers are in the Philippines (43%). Globally, the most loyal viewers are in Netherlands (73% have not cheated), Germany (65%) and Poland (60%).
