As we are only days away from the US Premier of Disney’s much anticipation streaming service, Disney has been busy. For the past few months, our friends in the Netherlands have had the opportunity to beta test the service. During this time, Disney has been tracking which shows and films were the most watched. The results are of no surprise to this writer as I have been trumpeting it’s virtues since I have been here.
The most popular show during their preview has been Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Obviously, the folks in the Netherlands are extremely sophisticated and discerning viewers. Whether or not those who watched are new to the program or were previous viewers is unknown. I tend to believe these are new “Agents” who have given the show a chance and have liked what they have seen enough to keep watching. Which is what I have been preaching to anyone who will listen…or read.😏
The most watched overall during the beta has been Avengers Infinity War with Agents of Shield being the second most popular over all. This was followed by Star Wars the Clone Wars. The study was done over a two month period. Out of the top ten properties streamed, the research reveals that six of the most popular properties viewed were television shows while the remaining four were movies.
Of course, this will change. Especially when the US audience hits the market and the Mandalorian makes its debut. But for now, I will accept this small victory for my show. I’m petty that way.
