The top 20 SVOD original English language television series in China

We measure the audience demand for television content around the world, factoring in all of the following and more:

  • Audience video consumption (streaming and downloads)
  • Social media engagement (hashtags, liking, sharing)
  • Consumer research actions (reading about shows, writing about shows, etc)

Demand for content is calculated daily for tens of thousands of TV shows in 100+ markets across all television distribution platforms: The more consumer effort is required, the more importance we attach to each of the factors above.

This approach results in the industry’s most advanced global TV demand measurement system, allowing us to provide insights on TV series that audiences the world over truly care about.
