The hugely popular Netflix series Squid game became its biggest title ever, the company said on Monday.
The company’s Netflix Geek account tweeted on Monday that Hwang Dong-Hyuk’s survival thriller hit 111 million global accounts in its first 17 days on the service. Besides, Squid game is the first Netflix series to surpass 100 million in its first 28 days of service, a spokesperson said The edge. Netflix typically uses 28-day windows to measure a title’s performance on its platform.
The spokesperson confirmed The edge that the numbers he shared are based on the number of accounts that watched the series for at least two minutes, his standard metric for headline ranking (although he used additional metrics to track headlines success in the past).
