The Digital Entertainment Group (DEG) conducts research each week to provide data on which are the most popular movies watched at home during the virus pandemic. The organization has launched a ‘Watched at Home Top 20’ list because, according to its researchers, people are “raving” about what films they’ve seen recently, instead of discussing the latest restaurant recommendations. Well, no surprises there.

The Watched at Home Top 20 list is compiled using the most popular titles consumed on both disc and digital during the previous week (with the exception of outside subscription based streaming platforms). The list is put together each week with the most up to date studio and retailer data and shows consumers’ “heightened enthusiasm” for home viewing of the newest release movies while staying at home.

DEG advocates and promotes entertainment platforms, products and distribution channels supporting movie, television, music, consumer electronics and IT industries. With the objective to support and drive marketing initiatives, DEG’s list has been created to increase awareness and encourage adoption by the public and consuming audience of emerging home entertainment formats and new distribution models. The Watched at Home Top 20 is published each Thursday on DEG’s web site here and is distributed in a daily email too.
