Netflix publishes worldwide viewing rankings by number of Movies and TV Series accounts worldwide

During this year’s Code conference, Netflix co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos shared a significant amount of data on some of the streaming giant’s best titles, a rare move for a company that traditionally holds numbers in private.

In one slide, shared as Sarandos talked on the Code stage with Kara Swisher, Netflix shared numbers on how many accounts have seen her top 10 movies and TV series based on the number of accounts that have watched at least two minutes of the title during the first 28 days were recorded on Netflix.

Bridgerton’s first season leads its list of best series with 82 million accounts that have seen the title, followed by the first part of Lupine and The Witcher, with 76 million accounts. Extraction led the list of best movies with 99 million accounts, followed by Bird Box with 89 million accounts and Spenser Confidential with 85 million.

A second slide ranked Netflix’s top 10 movies and TV series based on total viewing hours during the first 28 days of service. Bridgerton is still high on the list of series with well displayed 625 million hours.

The fourth episode of La Casa di Carta has 619 million, followed by the third season of Stranger Things with 582 million hours of viewing. Bird Box leads the list for the most popular films, with 282 million viewing hours. Extraction jumped to second place with 231 million watch hours, while The Irishman is in third place with 215 million watch hours.

The decision to share the figure comes at a key moment for creatives and talents in the streaming world. Services across the board have traditionally offered limited information on how titles perform on their platforms, an issue that has become a demerit point in a rapidly changing entertainment space.

Netflix data was tracked by total watch hours and the time viewers spent watching a title during the first month of using the service. Companies may be more interested in the number of times a title has been viewed from start to finish or how many people in total, not just accounts, are watching their shows.

Ultimately, without a unified standard between the various streaming services to “measure” the same data even if the platform changes, these data leave the time they find with the services running alone among their data without being able to compare them with the others. platforms
