The Most Streamed Movies and TV Shows of 2020

The Office is by far, the Most Streamed Piece of Entertainment 2020…

Now that 2020 is over, Nielsen has released a list of the movies and TV shows we collectively streamed the most last year.

As expected, Netflix dominated the television findings, both in terms of Nielsen’s list of original series and acquired series with Ozark, Lucifer, and The Crown taking the top three spots on the original series report, and The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, and Criminal Minds topping the acquired-series report.

Meanwhile, the other streaming giant Disney Plus, seemed to dominate the movie findings with Frozen 2, Moana, Onward, Hamilton, Aladdin, and Toy Story 4, all landing in the top ten most streamed films of 2020.

Most surprising perhaps, The Office earned up 57 billion minutes of streams across 192 episodes.
