- Netflix has a new website that shows the 10 most-watched movies and TV shows around the world.
- Netflix lists the number of hours each piece of content was viewed.
Streaming service Netflix has launched a new website that has one job and one job only — to show which TV shows and movies are the most-watched around the world.
The new website will list the top ten shows and movies and also display the number of hours people watched them for, giving us a useful metric when comparing just how popular one show is when compared with another.
The new website, which ists at top10.netflix.com, is now live and offers rankings either as a planet or by breaking things down to individual countries.
Netflix says that the rankings will be updated every Tuesday.
Every Tuesday, we publish four global Top 10 lists for films and TV: Film (English), TV (English), Film (Non-English), and TV (Non-English). These lists rank titles based on weekly hours viewed: the total number of hours that our members around the world watched each title from Monday to Sunday of the previous week.
Anyone who really wants to get down and dirty with the data can download the lists for use in spreadsheets, too. Oddly, those downloads come in two file formats, neither of which are the CSV format people might expect.
Netflix is hugely popular and while it might cost more than something like Apple TV+, it's hard to argue with its massive content catalog.
