About the Dataset

Yesterday, Netflix released comprehensive details revealing what people are watching, rivaled only by YouTube in terms of disclosed viewership data. We sought to analyze this dataset, encompassing viewership data from January to June of this year, as part of Netflix's 'What We Watched' report. It encompasses over 18,000 titles and approximately 100 billion hours of viewing, showcasing details such as hours watched for each title, premiere dates for Netflix original series and films, and global availability information.

MachEye's analysis delves into various trends observed during this six-month period, including the success of recently released and older content, the popularity of new series, the global reach of films across diverse genres. Netflix emphasizes that success metrics aren't solely tied to viewing hours and advises the use of the weekly Top 10 and Most Popular lists for fair comparisons between titles.

This dataset is obtained from about.netflix.com, and this article is published on 13 DEC 2023. Note that the available dataset may only be a small portion of complete set at any given point.
