Netflix's original shows absolutely crushed Amazon and Hulu in 2016

Video-streaming services are spending billions of dollars on original programming, but Netflix owns the competition when it comes to viewership.

According to this Statista chart showcasing new data from Symphony Advanced Media, which used its own independent technology to track viewership, Netflix’s original shows took nine out of the top 10 spots for the most-watched streaming shows in 2016. Hulu’s “11.22.63” was the only non-Netflix show to crack the top 10.

Netflix’s apparent dominance follows the company’s heavy investment in original content and stated goal of having that content account for 50% of its catalogue.

SymphonyAM’s data is based on engagement in the first 35 days of the show’s release in the US. Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu don’t release viewership numbers for individual shows.
