‘The Witcher’ Breaks Netflix Series Viewership Records

Netflix, however, has changed the way it reports a “view.” Previously, the company counted a view as a member account watching at least 70 percent of one episode of a series or 70 percent of a feature film. Now, it is touting that viewers “chose to watch” a given title, meaning that member watched for as little as two minutes — “long enough to indicate the choice was intentional,” per a footnote in the earnings report. Under that measurement, the streamer says The Witcher is on track to have the biggest first season ever for a Netflix original. – Rick Porter, The Hollywood Reporter » https://trib.al/HYCqnK4
