Let’s start with something that makes us spend hours glued in front of the television: the series. It is no secret to anyone that during 2022, the main streaming platforms brought out the best of the best directly to their catalogs. However, in terms of original productions the big winner was Stranger Things, that collected more than 52,000 million minutes of time throughout the year. This is a real triumph for Netflix, since it is the highest figure they have achieved since The office accumulated 57.1 billion minutes during the pandemic.

From there, the streaming giant appears in the entire top 10 of the television projects that broke it onlinedominating the list with titles such as Wednesday, Cobra Kai, Bridgerton Y The Crown among other. Amazon Prime Video is present up to the 11th placebut the curious thing is that they did not earn that position with their most expensive and ambitious production of the year (10.6 billion) No, the series that the caste took out for this service was neither more nor less than The Boyswell tied with The Great British Baking Show per 10.6 billion minutes of playback
