Bringing in more transparency in how it showcases the Top 10 titles, Netflix has launched a new website that gives you all the metrics on how a show or movie made it to the charts, every single week.
The new weekly Top 10 Netflix website will update every Tuesday with lists of its top films and series in the following categories: Films (English), Films (Non-English), TV (English), and TV (Non-English). Each list will display the number of hours each top-ranking TV show or movie was watched. Each list will track the success of Netflix content during the prior Monday through Sunday period before being published Tuesday.
We’ve had a lot of feedback about our metrics over the years.
So we went back to the drawing board and today we’re excited to launch https://t.co/a9X2usRUun — a new website with weekly global and country lists of the most popular titles on Netflix as ranked by view hours pic.twitter.com/JMrvzmRv8s

According to the company, the lists will count seasons of series as separate titles, but it will count repeated watches within a season toward that season’s overall watch hours, for example, if you watch a scene in a single episode repeatedly.
The company will also disclose its most popular shows and movies of all time for the aforementioned four categories, and the titles will be ranked based on their first 28 days on the service.
In a statement announcing the new portal, the company said the move is part of an initiative for greater transparency around viewing data.
