Almost half of Brits said they lose 2-3 hours of sleep in the past week because they wanted to continue streaming their favourite shows. That's more than 100 hours of sleep lost individually per year due to binge-watching.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said: "When you watch a show on Netflix and get addicted to it, you stay up late at night. We're competing with sleep on the margin."
