Top SVOD Platforms and Streaming Television Shows in France
Two science fiction titles — Stranger Things and Black Mirror — were the most popular digital original series in France with 50% more demand than the next-most popular title, 13 Reasons Why. Older favorite Orange is the New Black ranked fifth while the most popular non-Netflix title, CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery, ranked ninth.
Netflix accounted for 86% of total demand from digital original series, followed by Amazon at 6%. Demand for Amazon titles decreased over the course of 2017 while demand for Hulu increased. CBS All Access was the second-most in-demand platform behind Netflix in September and October due to the release of Star Trek: Discovery.
Crackle’s Snatch was among the top 30 digital original series in France despite the platform not being available there.
Top TV Series Genres in France
Drama was the most popular genre for digital original series for most of 2017. Comedy-dramas and science fiction had similar demand for the first half of the year, but science fiction increased to be about as popular as dramas after Stranger Things and Black Mirror was released.
