With the year coming to a close, Netflix has announced the most-watched movies and series on its platform in South Africa.
While 6 Underground only scored 37% on Rotten Tomatoes, it came first in the overall top 10 watched content. This may be because the film was released at a time when many South Africans were on holiday, and having time to be told what to watch on the Netflix homepage.
The Witcher, on the other hand, scored a much higher 59% on Rotten Tomatoes, and also featured high up on the top 10 list. It may not have featured as high as 6 Underground because movies require less of a time commitment than a TV series.

|Isn’t It Romantic|
