Netflix has listed down the most popular films and television series that they released in 2019, and guess what, almost all of them are original content from the streaming giant.
The streaming giant apparently created the list by collecting and collating the total number of Netflix accounts that streamed a certain movie or television show for a minimum of two minutes within the first month of that specific content’s release. Regarding The Witcher, which was released ten days before 2019 ended, Netflix relied on earlier data that they have collected to have a rough projection on the viewership numbers.
