Netflix is implementing a new system that will help subscribers get a feel for what's actually trending on its movies and television program list. Polygon reports that the streaming service will soon be able to track subscriber numbers based on how many hours a subscriber is watching a specific program. Previously, the numbers were measured much differently.
Before, the numbers were estimated per household, versus how long a subscriber actually spent viewing their favorite show or movie. Now, Netflix is counting an account "view," tallying numbers for when a subscriber watches just two minutes or more of a program. The new system is designed to track repeat viewings, as opposed to counting each subscription at one time.
Even with the new metric, many of the movies listed in the previous top 10 under the old system remains. Moving forward, the updated tracking device should help make Netflix's numbers more dependable in terms of what is actually trending. The streaming honcho also announced that they are gearing up to reveal viewer data for its original shows and movies in the near future, as streaming remains at an all-time high. As far as what movies are currently trending in the top 10, scroll through to see.
