[Nettavisen:] Netflix is today the largest streaming service in the Western world with around 150 million subscribers.
However, the entertainment giant holds the cards close to the chest in terms of viewership and which movies and series are the most popular.
Both Netflix's investors and clients have demanded more transparency about the data, and in May 2019 Netflix released a review of the ten most-watched series, films and documentaries for the first time in May 2019.
It was all a test of British consumers' viewing habits – one of the largest markets in Europe. Since then, information has leaked here and there, for example through social media or quarterly reports.
The latest figures came in the report for the third quarter and were published on October 16th. These are the latest official figures before Netflix gets competition from both Disney + and Apple +, writes Time Magazine.
Lists are made up of content that is most viewed regardless of content when it is posted on the platform. The user must have completed more than 70 percent of the movie or episode to be eligible for review.
