Netflix’s “Harry & Meghan” receives the highest UK ratings of the year
After its release on Thursday morning amid a flurry of publicity, Harry & Meghan has emerged as Netflix’s most popular show of the year in the United Kingdom.
During its first day on Netflix, the first episode of the documentary series starring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received 2.4 million views on smart TV devices.
According to figures provided by overnights.tv that were independently audited, the second episode received 1.5 million streams, while the third installment managed 800,000.
After the streaming service became a member of Barb, the official body for rating television shows, in October, Netflix ratings are being recorded for the first time in the United Kingdom.
The first episode of season five of The Crown, which premiered last month to 1.1 million streams, was surpassed by Harry & Meghan.
Next week, Harry & Meghan’s second half will premiere. After the Duke and Duchess of Sussex discussed their relationship, families, and hatred of the media, the first three episodes have dominated the news agenda in the UK.
