Netflix Says 64 Million Households Watched ‘Tiger King’

With Netflix generating record subscriber growth in the first quarter, it follows that select high-profile shows from the SVOD behemoth are generating major viewing.

Netflix April 21 said 64 million households streamed original true crime documentary “Tiger King” since its March 20 debut, with another 85 million households checking out Mark Wahlberg’s Spenser Confidential, and 30 million watching reality series “Love is Blind.”

While Netflix used to tabulate viewing based on a subscriber watching at least 70% of a program, it now credits viewership based on just two minutes of streaming, which could arguably suggest the aforementioned programs have been largely sampled by tens of millions of subscribers.
