What are the most watched series and movies on Netflix?

Published on

(ETX Daily Up) – Netflix had previously unveiled its most popular shows. The platform now introduces a new method of calculation which changes its ranking. So who from “Bridgerton”, “Stranger Things” or even “Bird Box” and “The Kissing Booth” will dominate this new ranking? Answers with two unpublished tops.

Until now, when Netflix deigned to communicate its “audiences”, the company totaled the number of subscriber accounts having watched at least two minutes of a program. This time around, the streaming giant was interested in the total number of hours watched by a program in the 17 days following its release on the platform. This method of calculation somewhat upsets the ranking of the most popular series and movies on Netflix.

Side series, “The Chronicle of Bridgerton” is essential with these two systems of classification. The royal series also attracted the greatest number of accounts (78 millions worldwide) and the highest number of hours watched, 625 millions in total. If the first season of “Lupine, in the shadow of Arsene” comes in second place by taking the first calculation method (75 millions of connected accounts), it is “La casa de papel: part 4” which takes its place with the other method thanks to 619 millions of hours streamed. On the third step, season 3 of the series “Stranger Things” exceeds the first season of “The Witcher” in terms of hours watched with 541 millions against 541 millions for the adaptation of the literary saga.

“Bird Box” and “Tyler Rake” always on top

Regarding movies, the action movie “Tyler Rake” starring Chris Hemsworth tops the charts with 93 millions of accounts having discovered at least two minutes of the film in 28 days following its release on the platform. The dystopian film “Bird Box” takes second place with 85 millions of accounts while “Spenser Confidential” with Mark Wahlberg obtained third place with 83 millions of accounts.

In terms of the number of hours watched, the top 10 is slightly different. “Bird Box” carried by Sandra Bullock takes first place with 231 million hours against 231 millions for “Tyler Rake”. Finally if “Spenser Confidential” comes third of the most watched films in relation to the number of accounts, it is the epic film “The Irishman” with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro which wins with 215 million hours watched.

Despite these different rankings, many voices still had criticized the Netflix system for ranking its best programs, counting only the number of accounts and not of people.
