How predictable are your Netflix habits?

PLANNING to chase down your latest TV binge with a fine documentary or funny kid's movie? So are most other people, according to Netflix.

The entertainment streaming provider says more than half of all its users take a few days break from TV each time they finish a season.

Over the break, normally three days, they'll wash down the end of a series with a film.

Now Netflix has crunched the numbers and come up with Australia's favourite TV and film pairings.

House of Cards, a gritty and sometimes violent take on the American political system, gets paired with Beasts of No Nation - the story of a child soldier in an unnamed country in western Africa.

Those watching Gilmore Girls don't stray too far from the genre. Netflix says they move on from Rory and Lorelei and onto films such as Dirty Dancing and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Marvel more your style? When finishing up with the superhero world of Daredevil, viewers took on the dystopian political film V for Vendetta.

Fans of horror films proved most of us need a laugh after a good scare.

Those who watched the '80s monster thriller Stranger Things series chased it with the animated kids movie Zootopia, whose predators are furrier and far more friendly.

Take a look at the top TV and film pairings from Netflix fans:
