"Took off my blindfold this morning to discover that 45,037,125 Netflix accounts have already watched "Bird Box" - best first 7 days ever for a Netflix film!" the streaming service's official Twitterposted on Friday, alongside a GIF of the flick's leading lady taking off her blindfold and saying, "Oh my god".

The company also made it clear that each account is only counted once, even though it may include multiple views.

For people like you and me, maybe it's not that big a deal whether Netflix (and its streaming competitors) report numbers like this under the rosiest possible scenarios. Just how do you translate what 45 million Netflix viewers means, compared to the number of people who might go see a movie in a theater, for example?
