Before the end of the year, the team at Reelgood decided to dig into data from its VOD Catalog and Engagement Insights products to discover how consumers changed their streaming preferences in 2021, the second year of the pandemic. Get exclusive insights into viewing habits as the country continued to navigate each new pandemic stage, and streaming services strategized on keeping consumers during these uncertain times.  Highlights: 

  • In 2021, there was increasing demand for Action & Adventure and Thriller movies and a decline in demand for feel-good and family-friendly films.
  • Streaming services increased their investments in Documentary, Family, and Animation movies by the end of 2021 as the pandemic was still peaking, although this hasn’t translated into increased consumption of these titles. 
  • Prime Video leads the ranking of the most extensive Action & Adventure catalogs. Meanwhile, HBO Max leads with the most streaming activity, with a gain of 9 share points. 
  • Prime Video and Netflix continue leading the SVOD ranking with the largest catalogs and most-streamed Thriller movies.
