NBC’s streaming service Peacock is one year old, and JustWatch has compiled a list of the streamer’s most popular titles after its first year on the market. While Peacock as a streaming service is still new, most of the appeal comes from NBC Universal’s back catalog of classics and favorites as evidenced by many of the titles that made the top 10 lists.
In the movie category, Harry Potter was the most-watched title by far. The first three installments of the Harry Potter series, The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets, and The Prisoner of Azkaban all made the top list. In fact, the Harry Potter franchise made up 34% of the top 10 movies on Peacock during its first year.
More classics American Psycho and Beetlejuice were No. 2 and 3, and interestingly, the newest film on the list was Margin Call in sixth place, which was still released 10 years ago in 2011.
TV shows saw more variety in terms of old and new titles. The most popular series on the streaming service was no doubt Yellowstone which has quickly become a fan favorite. The modern Western drama held more than 32% of the popularity in the top 10, which is 2.5x more popular than the early 2000s hit Battlestar Galactica which was next in line at 13.4%. Parks and Recreation, Modern Family, and of course, The Office also made the list. Yellowstone, Chicago P.D., Manifest, The Blacklist, and New Amsterdam are the only shows to make the top 10 that are still in production.
