The Digital Demand Hot Sheets do not reflect views on proprietary SVODs like Netflix, CraveTV or Amazon Prime Video. The shows listed have been ranked using Parrot Analytics’ global measurement standard, Demand Expressions, which measures demand and engagements through tracking of file-sharing and P2P platforms, social media chatter on sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, and other online engagement.
