A handful of familiar favourites are at the top of Parrot Analytics’ originals in-demand chart for the week ending June 13 in Spain.
Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms. The analyst illustrates demand expressions based on how much more popular a charted title is than an average TV show.
Netflix’s Stranger Things continues to be a huge hit across the world, with the show sitting atop the chart in Spain with 21.78 times the demand of an average show. Unusually, Netflix only has one other show in the chart with La Casa De Papel in third with 18.56 times the demand of an average show.
Hulu’s dystopian sci-fi series The Handmaid’s Tale is in second with 19.93 times the demand of an average show while the streamer’s parent company Disney continues to see popularity with its Marvel and Star Wars series on Disney+.
Elsewhere, Spanish language shows predictably prove popular with audiences in their native country. Amazon’s El Cid sits in fifth, while ATRESPlayer’s Veneno. Vida y muerte de un icono is in sixth and Movistar+’s La Resistencia is in tenth.
Another familiar series – Amazon’s The Boys – rounds out the list in seventh with 14.21 times the demand of an average show.
