What is your favorite reveal to binge on?
It turns out that the dozens of original series Netflix has pumped millions of dollars into creating are typically getting changing over. Instead, the majority of members of viewers invest their time watching–and re-watching–other systems’ material. The Office, Friend, and Grey’s Anatomy were the most-streamed reveals on Netflix last year, according to Nielsen’s newest data.
The Office was by far the most popular show to stream on Netflix in 2018. Observers invested 52.1 billion minutes streaming the completed NBC series, while simply 32.6 billion minutes were spent on Friend and 30.3 billion on Grey’s Anatomy.
Nielsen’s ratings simply include the U.S. and consider merely connected machines. That intends between 20 -3 0% of Netflix onlookers are not included in these numbers. It’s unfortunate news for Netflix’s original content, though both Orange Is the New Black and Ozark induced the top-1 0 list–the only Netflix originals to do so.
With NBCUniversal set to launch its own streaming service, the report about The Office’s streaming amounts is particularly significant. There is no news on when or if the service will draw the rights to The Office, Friends, and other popular content from Netflix, though reports indicate that NBC is working to establish The Office an exclusive belonging to its new service, according to Indiewire. Friend is on Netflix through at least 2019, also according to Indiewire.
Disney+ represents a similar potential threat when it comes to Grey’s Anatomy, which is owned by ABC/ Disney.
With 72% of Netflix minutes cited in the Nielsen report dedicated to non-originals, the streaming monster faces major threats in the imminent streaming wars.
