A lot was downloaded again in 2020, especially The Mandalorian, according to the top 10 most downloaded TV series.
This year streaming was undoubtedly more popular than ever, so probably also for downloading. That’s why thanks to TorrentFreak today the top 10 most downloaded TV series of 2020. There is also a nice conclusion to draw from the list, so let’s get started!
Top 10 most downloaded TV series 2020
In 2020 we saw a lot of great TV series again. Science fiction in particular is very popular. On 1 is the Star Wars epic The Mandalorian from Disney +. Westworld, Star Trek: Picard, Rick & Morty, The Flash and Arrow also grace the top 10. All shows that in one way or another have sci-fi influences.
But there is another nice conclusion to draw from the figures. The top 3 most downloaded TV series in 2020 are all not from Netflix. The Mandalorian, The Boys and Westworld are from Disney +, Amazon and HBO respectively.
From this you could interpret that the vast majority of series enthusiasts have a Netflix account. A torrent is then searched for the non-Netflix snacks. That would correspond to the subscriber numbers of all streaming services. And now that literally every small production company soon has its own streaming service, you will see that downloading will slowly but surely become more popular again.
There’s one more thing that stands out about the list, though that’s a trend we’re seeing across the video entertainment industry. Except for The Outsiders, literally every show on the list is part of a franchise and is about the umpteenth season in the series. Or in the case of Star Trek: Picard, for example, a spin-off from an established and much-loved umbrella franchise.
