Are you a Netflix customer who feels like you don’t always get the most of your $7.99/month for unlimited streaming video? Well, one man decided to put Netflix and himself to the test by watching more than 400 hours of video in a month.
Mark Malkoff, who previously tested New Yorkers’ willingness to do anything for a free taxi ride and thelimits of Apple store hospitality, started his Netflix movie-thon on April 16.
In the first week alone, he watched 60 films for a total of 95.55 hours. In fact, he says he didn’t leave his Queens apartment for a stretch of 155 hours that week, though he did manage to get Jason London, star of the Richard Linklater classic Dazed and Confused to pop by and provide running commentary on the film — and a shoulder rub.
