Netflix reported 195.15 million paid streaming customers worldwide at the end of September – up 23.3 per cent from the previous year.
So, what were Australians tuning in to in 2020?
Australians turned to female-led stories, iconic characters and worlds, and a heavy dose of romance.
Netflix also reported that Australians loved their local content in 2020.
The year has seen Aussies seek to #supportlocal in many different ways, and one of them was supporting local talent,” it said in a statement to 7NEWS.com.au.
“Aunty Donna might have won over the world, but locally, Aussies also revelled in the madness as Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun spent almost two weeks in the top ten in Australia.
“Aussie shows including Stateless, Love on The Spectrum and The New Legends of Monkey also found audiences and hit the most popular lists around the world on Netflix. “
Australians also looked to fill their time exploring other countries and cultures, with non-English content seeing a 60 per cent increase, driven by titles like The Platform (Spain), Barbarians (Germany), and Money Heist (Spain).
“While travel came to a halt for most part of the year, Aussies turned to armchair travel and escapism through stories, settings and characters as Emily in Paris and Dash & Lily hit the most popular lists,” Netflix said.
Without further ado, here is the list of most popular titles across genres in Australia in 2020.
