Netflix users clock-in more viewing hours than ever: over one billion in June

Despite its Qwikster mishaps, Netflix is reporting that its users are watching more video content than ever. 

CEO Reed Hastings recently took to Facebook to announce that subscribers have watched over one billion hours of content in a single month, for the "first time ever." As Tech Crunch points out, that's about one hour of video viewing per day against the five hours that the regular ole tube garners (I'm guessing this is YouTube). Hastings also mentioned he's excited about the service's exclusive rights to House of Cards and Arrested Development, declaring that they'll help to "blow these records away."

You never know, maybe Netflix will get more subscribers with its new exclusive lock on content.
