Thanks to the good folks at Just Watch, who provided this data, I found out what the most popular genres are for streaming movies and TV shows in several countries.

Comedy ranks highest in the US, UK, France, Spain, and Italy. (That’s common — 28 out of the 60 surveyed countries had comedy rank first.) It comes second in India, after Thriller.

The top five genres, in order, in the US are

  1. Comedy
  2. Horror
  3. Action
  4. Family
  5. Science Fiction

The UK is the same, only with SF and Family flipped.
