This November 16, 2021, Netflix has put online a website entitled Top 10. This platform will compile every week the list of all the most watched movies and series in the Netflix catalog. The site will be updated every Tuesday. “Whether you are viewing the Top 10 site on Netflix or browsing our service directly, now it’s very easy to see what other subscribers are watching”Netflix explains in a press release. Since last year, the streaming service has displayed the top 10 most watched series and films in the catalog directly in the interface.

To develop this new website, Netflix has considered a new method of measuring audiences. Until now, Netflix has counted a full view when a subscriber has watched only two minutes of a series within 28 days of its launch on the platform. For the sake of transparency, the streaming giant will now focus on total viewing hours passed in front of a series or a movie. This indicator risks favoring long content over shorter series and films.
