Consumers loved streaming subscription video over the Thanksgiving weekend. Nielsen said the top six streamed programs on television generated more than 8.43 billion combined minutes — up nearly 7% from the previous-week period. The tally included six programs topping 1 billion minutes, double the prior-period week.
Netflix original series “The Crown” again led all programs with 2.21 billion minutes streamed over 40 episodes — down 34% from the previous week. The SVOD pioneer again dominated with 90% of the top programs, with “The Mandalorian” on Disney+ as the lone outsider, in the No. 4 spot. Nielsen’s chart includes Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.
