The Nielson Survey is a global leader in audience measurements, data, and analytics. When it comes to audience behaviors, they can capture the numbers.

Their findings and market analysis can help companies learn valuable information about what is hot and what isn’t. Right now, Nielson has some data posted so you can see what digital content is HOT in America. Nielson’s most recent data reveals the top 10 pieces of content streaming in several categories including both original and acquired content.

We do know that Disney is considering removing content from the Disney+ platform. You can read about it here. Surely, it would make sense for the company to preserve the hottest content.
