Among roughly 37,000 users across the globe queried by the streaming giant earlier this year, 67% of respondents said that they don't mind risking embarrassment, awkwardness, or even spoilers if it means that they can consume their favorite shows and films on mobile devices on-the-go.

Furthermore, public bingers consider being able to access programming a higher priority than food or water while travelling or during their daily commutes.
