Given that the continuing effects of the Coronavirus pandemic have seen millions of people spending a lot more time confined to their homes than they’ve ever been used to, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that viewership for every major streaming service has gone through the roof over the last few months.
Netflix, in particular, seem to have done a great job of capitalizing on their subscribers’ increased amount of free time by dropping a series of high-profile original movies on a regular basis since March, and with HBO Max and NBCUniversal’s Peacock also having entered the fray recently, there’s no shortage of options to choose from when you consider that Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, AppleTV+ and others are all competing for a slice of the same pie.
However, with over 100 million more paying customers than their closest rivals, Netflix are without a doubt winning the streaming wars pretty comfortably, and their plan to remain as the top dog is remarkably simple. With another week having been and gone in what feels like a year that will never end, they’ve now dropped a huge amount of movies and TV shows since last Monday to keep viewers occupied for a while longer, and you can check out the full list below.
