Question: When new shows/seasons are added, are the added in season blocks (as in the whole season in one add) or the staggered episodes coming weekly.

Just asking because I'm eagerly waiting for the new Orange is the new black season

Always all at once.  Netflix has always strongly promoted the "Stream them all at once - people don't want to wait"  feature.

Hmm there are a few exceptions to that. For example The 100 is being added episode by episode to the Canadian Netflix as the shows air on US Network TV, and the same thing with Fargo on the (I think) Norwegian Netflix. These are the first shows I've seen where they've added them immediately after airing, normally they get added some time after the whole season has finished.

yep,  they also did the same thing for breaking bad in the uk.

As a general rule,  if they get something on a 'first run' basis (i.e. it has never been on tv before) then they load it episode by episode.
other stuff that has been on TV before goes on full season at a time.

the only exceptions are where netflix has produced the content themselves (like house of cards) where they put them all up at once even though it has never been on TV before
