Massachusetts is home to a very large number of Netflix viewers– and swindlers– according to a new study.

Technology company Techelate conducted the study using data from Google Trends, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration survey and a study from Time2Play. The study revealed that Mass. residents had the third-highest rate in the country of admitting to sharing their Netflix login credentials with others. About 57% of Netflix subscribers admitted to sharing login information. Massachusetts was outranked by only Ohio and Illinois for password sharing. Kansas, Tennessee and Utah residents had the lowest percentage of password sharers.

Bay Staters watched approximately 772 hours of Netflix annually, the study found, ranking seventh-highest of all 50 states. Oregonians watched the most Netflix, at 798 hours, while North Dakotans watched the least, at 662 hours.
