Netflix revealed the most watched content of 2020 on its platform in different territories. In the case of the United States, the appearance of the Spanish film El Hoyo stood out as the most watched foreign-language film.
Continuing with its habit of being more transparent in terms of viewing data, Netflix revealed the list of its most popular titles of 2020 across different countries.
And with regard to the US, the titles were separated into two lists: the most viewed by the type of emotions or themes (crying, laughter, love, travel, etc.) and the most viewed in terms of non-English-speaking productions.
In the first list, series such as Space Force, La casa de papel, Dear White People, Tiger King or films such as El hoyo, The Social Dilemma or Hillbilly Elegy stood out.
In the second, meanwhile, there were several highlights for the Hispanic world.
On the one hand, the Spanish film El hoyo established itself as the most watched foreign-language film of 2020.
Although shocking, the data is not surprising if you consider that Netflix itself had revealed in July that the Spanish film was already the most popular foreign language film in history on Netflix.
