Here’s the only thing you can do to help make sure Netflix doesn’t cancel your favorite shows

Whenever a new Netflix TV series or original movie catches your attention, try to sit down to watch it within the first month of it being on the streaming video service. Yes, many of us no doubt have a pile of content to watch that keeps getting larger behind the “My List” tab, but for those of you who save these things and tell yourself you’ll get around to them as soon as you can, just know that it’s within the first 28 days that Netflix has a pretty good idea of whether it decides a piece of content has been a hit or a miss.

That’s according to Cindy Holland, Netflix’s vice president of original content who sat for an interview moderated by Keshet Media Group CEO Avi Nir as part of the INTV conference (an annual event on innovation in television) Monday in Jerusalem. During the conference, she also shared some revealing data points about how much content Netflix subscribers are watching — and the different ways they’re doing so.
