Netflix has launched a new feature which will enable you to see what’s popular on Netflix. And we don’t just mean a vague list of shows and movies. Instead, Netflix will now list the Top 10 movies and shows on Netflix in your country.
Netflix Rarely Reveals Viewer Numbers
Netflix has always been cagey about viewer numbers. The streaming service will occasionally shout about the number of households who have watched one of its original productions, but, generally speaking, it keeps numbers close to its chest.
However, in May 2019, Netflix revealed the Top 10 shows and movies streamed in the UK. After several months of testing, Netflix is now expanding its Top 10 feature to other territories. Which means you’ll be able to see exactly what’s popular on Netflix.
Netflix Lists the Top 10 Shows and Movies
Until now, Netflix has only displayed unordered lists of what’s Trending Now and Popular on Netflix. However, as detailed in a post on the Netflix Media Center, the company is now rolling out a Top 10 feature which lists content in order of popularity.
Overall top ten most-watched in the UK in April:
1. Our Planet
2. The Perfect Date
3. The Highwaymen
4. The Silence
5. Black Summer
6. After Life
7. The Spy Who Dumped Me
9. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
10. You vs. Wild

You’ll now see rows showing the overall Top 10, as well as the Top 10 most popular shows and Top 10 most popular films. These lists will be specific to your country, and updated every day. Giving you an instant overview of what’s popular on Netflix.
The movies and shows which make the lists will also get a special Top 10 badge applied to their icons wherever they appear across Netflix. This means you’ll be able to see, at a glance, whether something is popular, when browsing your own list or by genre.
How to Watch What’s Popular on Netflix
Netflix’s Top 10 feature is rolling out now, so you should see it on the homepage sooner rather than later. Then, if you’re the sort of person who likes to watch what other people are watching, you’ll have a quick and easy way to do just that.
One thing we recommend are the Studio Ghibli films . These magnificent slices of anime tell deep stories with a level of style and wit Hollywood struggles to accomplish. The Studio Ghibli films may not make the Top 10 lists, but we recommend them regardless.
