#TrendingAwards2018: The most streamed shows


We don’t know about you, but we were really big into streaming this year. From Showmax to Netflix SA, we were binge-watching just about everything.

We asked Showmax what South Africans were streaming the most on their platform. They gave us this list, in no particular order, and minus things such as kids’ content or movies:


  • Younger
  • Game of Thrones
  • The Handmaid’s Tale
  • Naked SNCTM
  • Grey’s Anatomy
  • Vikings
  • Suits


  • Tali’s Wedding Diary
  • Trevor Noah Presents Nationwild
  • The River
  • Comedy Central Roast of Somizi . Die Radio Raps Show
  • Boer Soek ’n Vrou
  • Fynskrif

We couldn’t access stats from Netflix SA, but Netflix released a list of its shows that are most-watched across the globe.

A bizarre teenage show we’ve never heard of topped the list, but, unfortunately, it’s not available in South Africa.

1. On My Block

2. Making a Murderer: Part 2

3. 13 Reasons Why: Season 2

4. Last Chance U: Indy

5. Bodyguard

6. Fastest Car

7. The Haunting of Hill House

8. Anne with an E: Season 2

9. Insatiable

10. Orange Is the New Black: Season 6
