Netflix keeps their cards close to their chest, very much like Apple and other successful companies adored by the public. The streaming company has managed to grow through some smart and risky decisions and by maintaining social media profiles that look like they’re run by a bunch of tech savvy teens. The result is funny and annoying, getting the job done and gathering more and more followers with each passing day.
Breaking tradition, Netflix uploaded a chart with their most viewed TV shows and movies of 2018. Amidst their gargantuan amount of content that they put out, the names on this list are pretty recognizable, having taken over social media for weeks at a time and showing off ads and publicity in some of the world’s most important places.
The post uploaded on Netflix’s media center begins with a short introduction that manages to squeeze in a bunch of references to their own shows and movies. It’s cheesy, but Netflix knows you’ll still read it.
Netflix’s charts disclose that their most viewed movies of the year were The Kissing Booth, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and Roxanne Roxanne. Interestingly enough, the first two movies were also re-watched by 50 percent of those viewers.
The most binged TV shows of the year include “On My Block”, “13 Reasons Why,” “Bodyguard,” “Orange Is The New Black” and “The Haunting of Hill House.” The order in some of these rankings sounds off, especially since some of these shows and movies had no presence online. But since Netflix doesn’t disclose their stats, all we can do is trust them.
That was 2018 for Netflix! Looking forward to not being able to watch the gigantic amount of TV Shows and movies that they’ll release next year. You can check out the rest of their lists here.
