Netflix was the most watched streaming in 2022
In addition to the released lists, Netflix revealed some interesting metrics about its year.
The highlight, of course, was the fact that the company achieved more positions in Nielsen’s top 10 than all other streaming platforms combined. Something very relevant, given the very competitive year we had in this sector.
In addition, still according to the platform, five of the top 10 English-language series (Stranger Things 4, Wandinha, Dahmer, Bridgerton [temporada 2] and Inventing Anna) and three of the top 10 English language films (The Adam Project, Hidden Agent and Salute to Love) most popular of all time debuted this year on the service.
Other curious points are that, this year, an original series by the company (Stranger Things 4) managed to take the song “Running Up That Hill“, by Kate Bush, to the top of the charts, almost forty years after its launch. And Korean titles proved to be here to stay, with 60% of the platform’s subscribers having watched a title from the country.
Finally, the company also revealed that adherence to film sequences and new seasons of shows was even greater in 2022 and that, on average, its users watched six different genres per month on the platform.
