It’s official, The Mandalorian is the most in demand show on new streaming services. For Star Wars fans, it’s really no surprise, but let’s explore why The Mandalorian is most in demand, across Disney+ and every other new streaming service.

Demand for quality streaming service is high

The data comes from a survey performed by Parrot Analytics and reported on by The Hollywood Reporter.

The report shows that of the four new streaming services (Disney+, Apple TV+, HBO Max, and Peacock), there was no contest for the most in-demand tv series.

It looks at demand data during the launch weeks of each service to create this handy dandy chart which explains how in-demand each tv series is, giving further insight into how the ongoing streaming war is going.

Netflix fans will be sad to see that the service’s original content isn’t taken into account as the report only analyses new streaming services. (Sorry, Stranger Things fans.)

Without further ado, let’s check out the analytics!

As you can see in the graph above, there’s no contest. The Mandalorian is by far the most in-demand series across every streaming service, and was 55 times more in demand than your average streaming service show during the week that it launched. A Parrot Analytics representative even said that “The Mandalorian is in a class of its own.”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars also performed well with a high demand, though it pales in comparison to Mando.

Of course, you also have to take into account that the ‘big three’ streaming services aren’t featured, so high-performing Netflix original shows like Stranger Things aren’t included.

Still, Mando is up against some pretty hard-hitting tv shows with decent viewership stats. It just shows how popular the Star Wars universe continues to be. There has also been a lot of speculation that a load of Disney+ subscribers signed up for The Mandalorian only.
