The most popular show is Orange is the New Black, followed by Stranger Things.

The remaining four are acquired: The Office (No 9), Friends (No 10), Supernatural (No 12) and Breaking Bad (No 20).
Meanwhile, originals accounted for 13 of the top 19 shows on Amazon Prime Video; and on Hulu, just five of its top 19 were original, with the rest made up of acquired shows from Disney and Fox.

A full 75% of respondents said they use Netflix (80% of 25- to 29-year-olds and 66% for 55+ year-olds). Further, 77% of Netflix users said they used the service either daily or a few times per week.

The research also found that 14% of Netflix viewers share passwords (compared to 11% for Hulu and just 6% for Prime Video).
