"Netflix cheating" is on the rise, according to a global survey by the streaming service.

Nearly half of couples who watch Netflix together end up doing something completely normal: skipping ahead on shows behind their partner's back.

Typically, male Netflix cheaters have their own Netflix account and are most likely to cheat when their partner is out of the house.
