Check Out What Movies are Hot at Home!

With social distancing and remote communications being the new norm nationwide in response to COVID-19, digital media consumption in America is more prevalent than ever. To track its ever-growing scale, DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group is introducing the ‘Watched at Home Top 20’ list of the most popular titles consumed on disc and digital (with the exception of outside subscription based streaming platforms). Compiled each week with the most up to date studio and retailer data, it shows consumers’ enthusiasm for home viewing of the newest release movies.

“As people shelter in their homes during this pandemic, millions of entertainment lovers are using digital entertainment services much more heavily than in the past. A significant number of people may even be enjoying digital for the first time,” said Amy Jo Smith, president and CEO of DEG. “We are launching the Watched at Home Top 20 to show consumers what is new and popular, so that they can more easily make their own great entertainment choices.”
