Four of the top 25 most popular current television series are Netflix Original Series, with several others falling just below that mark. The $32.9 billion company has consumed our free time and found its way into our hearts and pockets. I have even found myself “dating” Netflix from time to time because I get addicted to a new series or drift into the never ending supply of entertainment. Brooke Nally, Director of content for BestSatelliteProviders.com stated, “Cable and Satellite television subscriptions have been dwindling because of the streaming revolution. More and more people cut the cord each year.”
So if you have fallen in love with Netflix and the ease of streaming then you probably already watch some of their more popular series. If Orange is the New Black, House of Cards and Hemlock Grove have been binge-watched and you need something to keep you entertained, look no further than to Netflix’s rising new favorites.
