Stuck at home and streaming a TV show? I bet it’s on Netflix…
As we covered earlier this week, Netflix dominates when it comes to second-chance screenings. Whether it’s movies that failed at the box office or shows that never found a wide audience, Netflix is often turning garbage into gold.
Schitt’s Creek, which was already popular while on Canadian TV, is now in the top ten of shows streamed online this week.
When it comes to the most screened shows on the internet, it feels like lots of them are second-runs or rewatches.
And Netflix is crushing that spectrum.
Nielsen streaming ratings factor in Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Disney+ into its top 10 streaming measurements. Its ranking is based on the number of minutes that consumers who have access to platforms are streaming during the week.
They compile a top ten weekly that tracks who’s watching what. These numbers are estimates… but they are all going Netflix’s way. And even Hollywood is taking notice of the sheer domination of Netflix.
