Now that’s streaming!

Millions of Netflix users around the world watch the service while sitting on the can in public restrooms, according to a new study.

The purveyor of “Stranger Things” and “House of Cards” — which boasts 109 million subscribers globally — says 67 percent of its users reported watching in public, and 12 percent of those do it from the comfort of a comfort station, EW reports.


Doctors warn that sitting on the loo too long is a health hazard, putting poopers at risk of hemorrhoids.

Perhaps viewers are looking for privacy for particularly emotional movies — because one in five public Netflix viewers said they’ve cried in public while watching.

More than a third admitted to watching at work — fewer than the 27 percent who binge shows like “Narcos” and “Daredevil” while waiting in line.

But public Netflix viewing poses bigger risks than just losing your job — 11 percent of public viewers say they’ve had a TV show or movie spoiled by sneaking a peak at someone else’s screen.
