Squid Game is most watched show with 1.6billion hours viewed in the first 28 days - NetFlix reveals its viewing figures for first time in 14 years

Since Netflix began streaming in 2007, the company has been reluctant to release its viewing figures

Speaking in 2019, Scott Stuber, Netflix’s head of original films, told the Hollywood Reporter that secrecy of its viewing figures is ingrained in the company’s DNA saying filmmakers no longer have to care about ratings.

He explained: ‘It was for television creators to get out of ratings and Standards and Practices and actually free up their narrative form so that they could tell stories that weren’t [influenced] night after night by those numbers. So the methodology was right. And now, as we have grown … we are used to it.’

Every Tuesday, Netflix will update the site with the top 10 series and films on the streaming service.

‘This is an important step forward for Netflix, the creators we work with and our members,’ Pablo Perez De Rosso, a vice president for content strategy at Netflix, wrote in a blog post Tuesday, November 16.

‘People want to understand what success means in a streaming world, and these lists offer the clearest answer to that question in our industry.’
