Stranger Things and Netflix top Hungarian in-demand digital originals

Hungary-originals-Top10s-111017Netflix’s supernatural drama Stranger Things is currently the most in-demand digital original in Hungary, according to research outfit Parrot Analytics.

The show, which is due to return for a second series later this month, fended off rivals with more than 780,000 ‘demand expressions’ in a week where seven of the top 10 digital series originated on Netflix.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms.

For the week ending October 8, CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery was the second highest-ranked digital original in Hungary, attracting 766,969 demand expressions.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Netflix’s reboot of the American comedy-drama – a show that originally ran on The WB and The CW between 2000 and 2007 – ranked third with 490,279 demand expressions.

Netflix originals Narcos and 13 Reasons Why placed fourth and fifth, followed by Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, The Handmaid’s Tale.

The rest of the top ten was rounded out by Netflix’s Big Mouth, House of Cards and Black Mirror. Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle came in at number 10.

The Hungarian stats coincide with the Digital TV Central and Eastern Europe event, which runs this week in Budapest.
