‘Stranger Things’ Shoots Up Digital Originals Chart, But ‘Orange’ Still No. 1, Parrot Analytics Says

14 August, 2018

Two weeks after the launch of Season 6, Orange Is the New Black remains the No. 1 in-demand digital original in the United States, according to our data for the week ended Aug. 11.
