HBO Max and NBCUniversal’s Peacock may be latecomers to the subscription video-on-demand party, but their catalog programming ranked higher in July than Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+, according to new data from online media guide JustWatch.com.
From June 19 to July 20, JustWatch top movies streamed (in order) included Palm Springs, Independence Day, Greyhound, Knives Out, Ford v Ferrari, The King of Staten Island, The Old Guard, Irresistible, 1917 and Relic. Top TV shows included “Yellowstone,” “The Legend of Korra,” “Alone,” “The Alienist,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Better Call Saul,” “Schitt’s Creek,” “Mad Men,” “The Good Place” and “Perry Mason.”
Citing July ratings from IMDb.com, JustWatch, which offers online content guides to third-party SVOD and AVOD platforms, analyzed catalog programming across the various streaming channels, which excluded original programming.
The company said 86% of Peacock’s catalog is rated between 6 to 9 on IMDb ratings, which is runner-up to HBO Max, with 92% of its catalog receiving the same IMDb rates — but ahead of Netflix Amazon Prime Video and Disney+.
When comparing each catalog’s quality, most of HBO Max’s content is rated an 8, which JustWatch clarified does not mean HBO has the most titles compared with Netflix.
