This Study Proves Netflix Isn’t the True Binge-Watching Qween
According to your dating profile, your interests are probably “going on outside adventures and rock climbing,” but let’s be real here for a minute. Most weeknights you can probably be found binge-watching your favorite shows. I mean, there’s a reason “Netflix and Chill” has essentially become the tagline of our generation. However, it looks like that saying should really read “Hulu and Chill,” as a new study from Cordcutting.com recently revealed Netflix has a whopping 61% less TV content than its competitor.
Cordcutting.com’s recent survey took a deep dive into what exactly each streaming service offers. They found that Hulu has 3,872 movies and 3,179 TV shows (7,051 titles total), while Netflix offers up 4,393 movies and 1,226 TV shows (5,619 titles total). So if you’ve been scrolling through your Netflix queue and wondering why you can’t really find anything you want to watch, it could have a little something to do with the fact that Netflix offers 61.4% fewer TV shows than Hulu.
Additionally, Cordcutting.com found that Hulu subscribers tend to be happier with the content they’re consuming overall. The average TV show rating on Netflix is 3.73 stars (out of five), while Hulu gets 4.05 stars (also out of five). In the end, Hulu users approve of their content 8.6% more than Netflix users do. Welp, it looks like we know where we’re going to find our next series to watch.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
