Streaming service Netflix on Tuesday announced its new ranking website, which aims to show its users the company’s Top 10 titles in different countries across the world. This comes after an announcement in October, wherein the company said that a change in its metrics is coming.
The name gives the purpose of the site away, with the website showing the most viewed shows and movies on Netflix in various regions. This ranking is divided into Film (English) TV (English) and Non-English categories for the same.

Furthermore, the service also highlights the regions from where each show or movie has been streamed the most. This specific list will see an update every Tuesday with data spreading from Monday to Sunday.
