'The Man in the High Castle' is the most popular show on Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video by Jumpshot

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.
