Top 10 shows watched on Netflix Canada in January

If you’re in the mood to unwind and explore the latest releases but find yourself undecided, Netflix offers a weekly roundup of the top 10 trending TV shows available for streaming in Canada and around the globe.

These rankings are determined by the ‘views’ for each title during the previous week (Monday to Sunday).

“Views are calculated as the total hours watched divided by the runtime and are rounded to the nearest 100,000” notes Netflix on their website.

Additionally, Netflix assesses each season and film individually. This means that titles like Stranger Things may appear more than once in the Top 10— if multiple seasons are popular.

“The total number of weeks a season or film has spent on the list is also provided, reflecting the dynamic nature of titles moving in and out of the Top 10,” Netflix says.

For a global perspective, the streaming platform publishes Top 10 lists for nearly 100 countries and territories.
