How Netflix calculates its new daily top 10 lists of its most popular movies and TV shows – Business Insider

  • This week, Netflix introduced daily top 10 lists of its most popular shows and movies, which will be included in new rows on the service’s interface.

  • The daily lists are another way for the streaming giant to promote its original content to subscribers as the streaming war heats up.
