“Television consumption and internet traffic give us an idea of the time and intensity with which we dedicate ourselves to these technological platforms”, says Terri Thrush, Panamanian film producer.
Many things have changed in the last year and among them is the consumption of movies and television series. Social isolation limited the possibilities, but diversified the media we choose to enjoy our favorite content. The cell phone, video consoles, computer and streaming platforms became the best option to enjoy from home.
In the case of Netflix, the platform gained 2.2 million subscribers between July and September 2020, reaching 195.2 million users worldwide. The impact of social isolation is evident when comparing subscriber growth in the first six months of 2020, when 26 million people joined the platform, while in 2019 the growth was 12 million.
