The UK’s Communications Regulator, also known as Ofcom, recently published their 2018 Media Nations Report which breaks down the UK’s viewing and listening habits, and the ten most-streamed shows in the UK have been revealed and Netflix is still very much the dominant streaming platform in the UK;

  1. Friends (Netflix)
  2. The Grand Tour (Amazon)
  3. The Crown (Netflix)
  4. Stranger Things (Netflix)
  5. Peaky Blinders (Netflix)
  6. Black Mirror (Netflix)
  7. The Big Bang Theory (Netflix)
  8. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Netflix)
  9. The Good Place (Netflix)
  10. Vikings (Amazon)
That’s right, folks! Iconic American sitcom Friends is the most-streamed show in the UK, despite ending way back in 2004. With old fans returning to re-watch it and falling in love with it all over again and younger audiences who perhaps weren’t even around in its original run discovering it for the very first time, Friends has once again become a cultural phenomenal, just like it was during its original run from 1994-2004.

Amazon’s motoring series The Grand Tour which follows the escapades of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, stands strong in second place, despite a 7% decline in Prime viewership between the first and second seasons.

Netflix’s historical drama The Crown comes in at number three and Stranger Things, another Netflix Original series that took the world by storm when it started back in 2016, comes in at number four – showing that its popularity is not diminishing over time.

Birmingham-based drama Peaky Blinders comes in at number five, with Black Mirror, The Big Bang Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place and Vikings rounding off the list.
