Streaming services have become increasingly popular in America, with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and others offering on-demand streaming of TV shows, movies, documentaries and more.
On Tuesday, the streaming service Hulu announced that Montana ranked #1 among all states in 2017 for the most hours streamed per subscriber.
In a press release, the company said: "A first for Big Sky Country, Montana! The state stole the crown for the 'most hours streamed, per subscriber' title from Wisconsin, which held the top spot for the previous two years. North Dakota took the second spot in 2017 followed by Idaho, Alaska, Wyoming and Wisconsin."
Other findings released by Hulu:
Viewers watched a lot of South Park. Americans streamed more than 107 million hours of South Park on Hulu in 2017. Season 20, episode 10 “The End of Serialization as We Know it” was the most watched episode.
Family Guy, Law & Order SVU, Bob’s Burgers and Rick and Morty were also popular titles in 2017. As you might have guessed – The Handmaid’s Tale was the #1 viewed Hulu original and viewers couldn’t get episodes fast enough with sixty-six percent of each new episode viewing occurring within the first three days of availability.
Daddy’s Home was the most watched movie. Is there a more irresistible pairing than Ferrell and Wahlberg? The data says “no, there is not.” Daddy’s Home was watched more than 12 million times in 2017. Quite a change from 2016’s top movie: TheSpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
