June will be another big month for Netflix, which has teamed up with superstars such as Spike Lee and Will Farrell to launch its latest original film, according tomedia reports. In fact, Netflix released 46 original movies and TV shows this month.
Seeing such a huge number, I wonder if you’ve thought about where Netflix, the global streaming service, comes from its best original content?
Let’s take a look at surfshark’s findings.
As part of Netflix’s research, Surfshark explains: “The film and television industry invests millions of dollars to create their output, and with so much money at risk, they do their best to make as much money as possible from their investments.” To this end, film companies enforce their copyrights through the state. Different markets have different demands for content – a classic British sci-fi movie, for example, may not interest American audiences, or a popular American film may not be attractive in Ukraine. “
To delve deeper into all this, Surfshark extracted data from Netflix’s database, Flixwatch, including details of Netflix’s films and TV in more than 70 countries. For each movie and TV show, Surfshark also looked at IMDb and Metacritic ratings, as well as Oscar and Emmy award-winning records related to Netflix content, and then used all of this data to generate average ratings for each country’s Netflix catalog.
In its published research report, the following points are extracted from a few key points:
The United States has the largest number of Netflix films, with 5,879 (4,035 movies and 1,844 TV series), while Canada has the largest number of films, with 4,043;
Netflix has the lowest average IMDb score (6.95 points) for content available in Canada and the United States;
South Korea has 109 Oscar-winning films in the Netflix catalog, 24 more than second-placed Switzerland, which has 85 Oscars.
