Surfshark study examines Netflix catalogs by country

Study Attempts to Quantify the Country with the Best Netflix Content (and the Results are Surprising)

A recent analysis of Netflix’s title libraries by countries attempts to reveal which market has the best content and its findings are fascinating…

Netflix currently dominates the world of streaming (though Disney+ is fast carving out its own impressive market share with 54.5 million subscriptions). Meanwhile, Netflix sits at the top, with over 182 million subscribers worldwide. But, not all those customers have access to the same movies and television shows. Instead, Netflix’s catalog changes from country to country.

Surfshark Study Examines Netflix Catalogs by Country

Since Netflix’s library differs depending on local markets, Surfshark, a VPN provider, pulled data from the Netflix database¬†Flixwatch, which includes Netflix film and TV details for more than 70 countries. The company then crunched the numbers and published a study that identifies which country has the best Netflix catalog.¬†Here’s the highlights of the findings, which reveal a few key and interest facts:¬†

  • The United States boasts the largest library, with 5,879 titles — 4,035 movies and 1,844 TV series — while its neighbor to the north, Canada, has the most movies, with 4,043 films.
  • The combined catalogs in the United States and Canada have the lowest average IMDb ratings, scoring 6.95 out of 10.
  • South Korea tops all others, with 109 Oscar-winning films. That represents 24 more movies than Switzerland, the runner up, with 85 Academy Award winners.
