Streaming services in majority of countries every month, Netflix added an exceptional batch of movies and TV shows to their libraries in 2019. Netflix’s popularly criticized but extremely engaging movie release, starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, was the streaming network’s most popular US release for 2019, as well as in other states.
The third season of “Stranger Things” made it to the second spot in terms of overall appeal and also topped the list of the 10 most popular Indian series for the ending year, followed by Henry Cavill’s buzzy “The Witcher” that achieved a front-running spot as well. The Emmy-winning limited series “When They See Us,” which premiered May 31, came in at No. 6.
The most popular streaming channel released top 10 “most popular” lists for its content in various genres, breaking down the movies, series, nonfiction programs, documentaries, comedy specials, kids and family, also including international releases that were among the most viewed in the market.
According to a Netflix spokeswoman, the rankings were determined not by total number of viewers, but by counting the total number of households to stream an individual title for at least two minutes during the first 28 days of its release. For those titles that were extracted yet for, the company used projections based on the early data to estimate a 28-day viewership number, a process that Netflix has used with viewership data disclosed on its quarterly profit numbers.
