Netflix dominated the rest of the list, with the supernatural Arthur Conan Doyle series “The Irregulars” coming in at second place with 424 million minutes, more than 200 million minutes fewer than “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” Other Netflix titles on the list include “Ginny & Georgia,” the Spanish-language “Who Killed Sara” and “The Crown.”

On the movie side, Eric Andre’s “Bad Trip” topped the list with 308 million minutes, followed by “Yes Day,” “Deadly Illusions” and “Operation Varsity Blues,” all from Netflix. “Moana” and “Raya and the Last Dragon” from Disney+ and “Coming 2 America” at Amazon also made ths list.
