Currently, more than half of all content streaming on Netflix US is Netflix Originals. The figure is 55%, a year-over-year increase of 5%. These are all Netflix Originals – movies and series from around the world made by Netflix in their respective regions.
Worldwide, more than 3,500 Netflix Originals are also running on the app in various countries.
How many titles are on Netflix US?
Whatsonnetflix reports that as of July 2023 there are 6,621 movies, series and specials on Netflix US. This number does not include the 60+ video games in the app. Of the 6,621 titles, the Netflix Originals titles are 3,657.
It’s taken Netflix 10 years to build that library, and the streamer is celebrating with social media posts. It recently shared a post covering 10 years of its groundbreaking series Orange is the New Black.
But the number of originals may fall overall this year, mainly due to the writers’ strikes and the actors’ strikes in the US that have halted productions.
As a result, Netflix is now licensing more titles than it used to, from players like Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, HBO, Warner Bros. Discovery and the like.
Compared to the US, the UK Netflix library consists of 45% Netflix Originals titles. Netflix Canada and Netflix Australia also have over 50% Netflix Originals based on about 7,000 titles each.
