  • Netflix cheating is on the rise

"In a binge-watching world where it's easy to say 'just one more, ' Netflix cheating has quickly become the new normal", Netflix wrote in its announcement.

Netflix cheat-watching infographic, that shows 46 percent of streaming couples admit to cheat-watching.

Netflix said 25 percent of cheating happens when one partner falls asleep, but 53 percent some say "sleep cheating" doesn't count.

Four years after the first study on Netflix cheating in the US, a new study finds almost half of streaming couples around the world, 46 percent watch ahead of their partners.

One solution to stream-cheating would be to commit to solo viewing, but that doesn't make much sense if you're the kind of person who likes to immediately dissect plot details with friends.

Meanwhile, the most loyal Netflix partners are the Dutch, where 73 percent have never cheated.

Anxious that cheat-watching will make its way into your relationship?

But what's the big deal?

Just how grave is this act of TV adultery? Brazil had the highest number of cheaters, at 58 percent, while the Netherlands had the lowest, at 27 percent. If you suspect something, you can see if any future episodes have been watched.

At least the next time you flip open your computer and find your Netflix viewing history is inaccurate, you'll know you're among the masses. It seems that clicking on to the next episode is just too hard to resist.

Cards on the table: When I was in college and in a long distance relationship, my partner and I would watch Downton Abbey together by playing it and Skyping at the same time, which is gross. Everybody's going to be talking about it at work, and you don't want to feel left out. And according to a new study, you're not alone.
