Streaming platforms have established themselves in recent years as the best showcases of the entertainment. Millions of users around the world, thousands of movies, series and shorts in their catalogs, and billions in profit for the actors that participate in this growing sector.
A cultural phenomenon, “within reach”, which in less than a decade has reached record numbers.
Only Netflix exceeds with its huge number of subscribers, which by 2022 reached more than 231 million, the population of countries such as Brazil, Mexico, or Russia.
In Colombia, this entertainment sector has not been left behind, and during 2022 it generated more than $3.26 trillion in revenue, as documented by the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC).
However, this growing sector continues to dispute the hegemony of traditional television. For this reason we share a list in which the products have been seen in both formats.
It is common to surf the net and find lists of songs, series and movies. “The five best movies of all time”, “The best songs of the 80s”, “The most awarded series of the 2000s”; However, purists resist, they have pigeonholed cultural products in terms of better or worse.
