Most-watched Netflix shows and movies in South Africa

“Last year (2020) , South Africans more than doubled the amount of their Netflix viewing compared to 2019,” the streaming service said.

“At the start of last year (pre-Covid lockdowns from Jan – Feb 2020), South Africans spent most of their ‘TV Time’ watching titles across multiple genres – however, from March to July, thrillers, action, musicals and reality had a surge in viewing hours, with kids content, drama and comedy+stand up taking the top three spots of the most popular genres throughout the year.”

The genres that saw the biggest boost in viewing, however, were fantasy, K-Dramas, and anime.

Additionally, many sports fans turned to sports-related documentaries on Netflix during lockdown to compensate for the lack of live sports.
