The Man in the High Castle was the most popular show on Amazon Prime Video, proving once again that word-of-mouth plus binge watching can equal to a show's growing success in a streaming world. The top ten TV shows accounted for 36% of the shows viewed. Here are the full insights from Jumpshot.
Insights from Jumpshot:
- The Top 10 TV shows accounted for 36% of all the TV shows viewed on Amazon Prime this past week, a stark contrast to the week beginning of 6/23 when the top 10 shows accounted for about 62% of all TV shows viewed.
- No Dominant Show: Unlike prior weeks, this week we see a much more even distribution with The Man in the High Castle only drawing a 28% share of the top 10 shows.
- Minimal Original Content: Only 2 of the top 10 shows (Bosch and The Man in the High Castle) this week were Amazon Original content.
- With only one season of Doctor Thorne and 2 seasons of Catastrophe available on Amazon Prime, this would explain why Amazon is bringing on Seasons 3 & 4 of Catastrophe to ensure viewership of their original content and to differentiate themselves from the competition.
