The most streamed shows of 2016 have been revealed with Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black was the most-watched show on any streaming service last year.
Data company Symphony Advanced Media have pulled the data from shows that hit Netflix, Hulu and Amazon during last year, which have been collected from each show’s viewing figures from its opening 35 days.
Whilst none of the streaming services will confirm the views, the data that has been collated by SymphonyAM’s tracking technology, and does give some interesting ideas of what’s been the most popular.
Orange Is The New Black was streamed over 23 million times during the first 35 days after its release – two million more streams than Netflix hit Stranger Things garnered during the same time period when it premiered a month later.
Next up after Orange Is The New Black and Stranger Things was Fuller House, a sequel to the popular US sitcom Full House, which pulled in 21.5 million streams during its first 35 days on Netflix.
21 of the top 25 most popular original streaming programs aired on Netflix, while Amazon and Hulu both contributed two shows each to the list.
However, Amazon’s The Grand Tour did not make it onto the list with SymphonyAM saying that they couldn’t collect ‘stable’ enough data to add it into the list.
