JustWatch: Disney+ Continues On Global Growth Trend
According to data collected by online streaming content navigation/recommendations web site JustWatch, the Disney+ streaming service is the fastest growing SVOD streaming app service in 58 out of 64 active markets around the world through September 30th.
However, in the United States HBOMax paced all SVOD services in the same period of time. (See JustWatch supplied graphic above). Disney+ dominated the rest of North and South America, as well as most of Europe and the Asia Pacific region.
The discloser was made just prior to Disney+ Day on November 12th, reflected measurements taken of JustWatch users around the world between Jan. 1, 2021 and Sept. 30, 2021 as well as data based on reports from prensario.net, observer.com, senalnews.com, tiempoar.com, digitaltveurope.com, telstye.com, wort.lu and advanced-television.com.
While Netflix remains the global SVOD market leader, it’s Disney+ that has had the most rapid expansion since the beginning of 2020, according to JustWatch.
Binge led all streaming services in Australia.
Meanwhile, according to other Just Watch user data, Free Guy (Disney+), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Disney+) and Red Notice (Netflix) represented the top three movies streamed or searched for in the United States for the week of Nov. 8-12, 20201, according to data gathered by the by online recommendations service.
Yellowstone (Season 4, Paramount, 1-3 Peacock), Dexter (Showtime Anytime) and The Shrink Next Door (Apple TV+), were the top three most streamed TV series in the United States for the same period.
The provided charts from JustWatch offer top 10 lists of last week’s most streamed or searched for movies and top 10 most streamed or searched TV shows, as registered in on-line streaming information.
JustWatch is a web-site-based service and mobile app offering an online guide that aggregates title listings for movies and TV shows offered by more than a hundred streaming content services to make it faster and easier for viewers to find the programs they are looking got. These disparate international on-demand OTT services range from some the most popular to U.S. audiences, to some international sources that might be less familiar to some viewers. Among them are: Netflix, Disney+, Now TV, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, hayu, Mubi, Sky Go, All 4, Curzon, Chili, YouTube, Rakuten TV and others.
Just Watch even directs searchers to movies still showing in cinemas.
Users have a number of filters at their disposal to search through including: genres, prices, ratings scores, age ranges and even available resolution quality. The service also provides suggestions based on a user’s preferences, and will let viewers jump from the suggested listing in the JustWatch app to the service where the recommended program is being hosted.
JustWatch doesn’t provide direct in-app streaming of programs, but it does offer a free and convenient way to browse for something of interest without having to go looking through dozens of different apps and services.
The service then gathers data from the searches and selections made by its users to assemble relevant information on trending content and streaming behaviors. Users have the ability to register an account with JustWatch to enable a greater level of personalization in performing searches and giving users a heads-up when a movie or program becomes available. Signing up for account will require accepting email marketing from JustWatch, with the option of turning that off in settings after the fact.
