This year, we’ve binged hard and streamed like our lives depended on it. Now it’s time to take a look back at some of the most-watched TV shows and movies over the last several months, according to Variety. This particular list of 30 most-watched VOD releases, was put together by research and analytics firm ScreenEngine/ASI who surveyed 1,200 U.S. video viewers age 13-64.
We’d just like to take this time and thank Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+ for being some true MVPs this year. Really, if it wasn’t for them, we probably would have gone insane back in July, but here we are!
Because their results have yet to be verified by the streaming services themselves, and due to the fact they exclusively spoke to our friends across the border, this is just a list of what we’re likely to see on the official reports we’re expecting later this month – but we thought it was cool compilation nonetheless.
While some titles sounded right on the money, the list did still managed to surprise us a little bit, so it’ll be fun to compare and contrast before the new year. Let’s take a look, shall we?
