Netflix shares its results for six months. The streaming service publishes every Tuesday (at 9 PM Poland time) the latest lists of the most viewed products, worldwide and by country. This can be checked on the website launched in November – top10.netflix.com.
The top 10 post ratings are based on the total number of hours for a particular title seen by users worldwide. The new methodology replaces the previous audience measurement model, which summarized the number of accounts on which a specific movie or series was watched for at least two minutes in the first 28 days after its first viewing on Netflix.
The site publishes four lists each week: lists of the ten best films and series – two separate for English and non-English productions. Netflix also shows top 10 local lists for over 90 countries, including Poland. The platform announced that each season of the series will be measured separately, which means that more than one season of the popular Netflix series may appear in the weekly Top 10 list.
