Netflix’s ‘Umbrella Academy’ Was the Top Streamed Title in August

Netflix dominated the streaming space last month with more views on its series The Umbrella Academy than any title on any other streaming service. According to 7Park Data, almost 20% of people polled watched the superhero show in August making it the top viewed program that month. Season 2 of the series premiered on the streamer July 31.

Netflix also claimed the second-place spot on the list with Jamie Foxx’s Project Power which was streamed by just over 10% of viewers on the research panel. With almost a 10 digit difference between the two programs, Netflix still managed to claim the top two heavy hitters for August.

With that said, The Umbrella Acadamey’s 19.7% still falls significantly short of the success Disney+ saw in July with Hamilton. The critically acclaimed Broadway production held more than 31% of the total streaming views for the month. The next competitor in line, Netlifx’s Unsolved Mysteries, didn’t come close to reaching that number with just 13.7%.

With the top shows in August both coming from the same platform, Netflix topped the charts with the most time viewers spent watching a streaming service last month. 7Park collects data from a panel ranging from 15,000-25,000 U.S. Households watching on connected TVs and devices like Roku. Mobile devices are not included in the data.
