BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - More and more Americans are turning to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon for entertainment at home. And those companies are keeping a close eye on what we're watching as they invest in more original content.
Netflix recently announced that in the next few years it plans to create half of its own content. So what are people watching?
In Mississippi, the top Netflix show is Last Chance U, a docuseries set at East Mississippi Community College. It showcases the school's 2015 football season as the team tries to win their third consecutive national championship. The show has been renewed for a second season.
Cabletv.com identified each state's favorite show by compiling a list of all the original Netflix content, and then analyzing state data from Google Trends in 2016. Movies, children's shows, continuations (series aired previously on another network), and limited, one-time specials were all excluded from the map.
The big winner overall was Marvel's Daredevil. But a few other state's followed Mississippi and had a regional favorite that was filmed nearby.
Bloodline, a drama set in the Florida Keys, ranked #1 in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina. House of Cards was tops in the District of Columbia. And The Get Down, a music drama set in South Bronx, was favored in New York.
