Netflix reveals most viewed streamed shows and movies in 2017

Without a doubt, 2017 has been a defining year for Netflix. Subscribers of the online content streaming and video-on-demand service provider from around the world watched over 140 million hours of shows each day. That’s a little over a billion hours per week.

In the Philippines, Netflix content was most watched by most number of subscribers on April 14, Good Friday. Perhaps, numerous Netflix members in the country streamed their favorite shows when they went out of town during that long weekend. The Philippines is currently in the list of countries with the most mobile Netflix downloaders in the entire Asia.

Not surprisingly, Stranger Things 2 was the most ‘Binge-Raced‘ show locally. More interestingly, can you guess how many times a Netflix subscriber (name disclosed for logical reasons) in the country watched the movie Madagascar this year?
