10 biggest Netflix English Original movies of all-time ranked according to the hours watched – how many have you seen?

Netflix has been dominating the streaming wars over the past few years despite several tough competitors vying for the top spot. Things began to change for the global streaming giant way around in 2021 when it switched from the number of accounts starting a show/movie to the to hours watched.

As it began to reign over others, Netflix, on every Tuesday since mid to late 2021, started to provide stats on 40 titles in four different and separate categories, including the Original movies it has made, which have witnessed a huge viewership. And, each time a title enters the all-time top, the streamer gives us an updated list. 2022 alone has seen four titles break into the top 10 list for the most-watched English Netflix Originals.

Here’s how the Top 10 “all-time list” works as per Netflix:

“… we provide a list of the Top 10 most popular Netflix films and TV overall (branded Netflix in any country) in each of the four categories based on the hours that each title was viewed during its first 28 days. Since some titles have multiple premiere dates, whether weekly or in parts, we count the 28 days from each episode premiere date in each country.

Below is the full list of 28-day hourly stats released by Netflix for the top 10 English Original titles till the end of 2022 on its platform:
