Local Language Content Top Most Popular Netflix Releases of 2019 in Eight Countries
Local language films and TV shows lead the list of most popular content viewed on Netflix in eight countries outside the US in 2019.
The streaming platform released the information on 30 December, based on the number of accounts that watched at least two minutes of a film or TV show in its first 28 days of release on the platform. While the number of accounts is not revealed, it does illustrate how local audiences continue to respond to Netflix’s aggressive local language production strategy.
Sacred Games 2 topped the list in India, The Naked Director in Japan, Quicksand in Sweden, Kingdom in South Korea, Money Heist S3 in Spain, Undercover in the Netherlands, The Stranded in Thailand, and Home For Christmas in Norway. The top release in the UK was US documentary The Disappearance Of Madeleine McCann.
