NEW YORK >> An estimated 6.3 million people saw the premiere of Netflix’s “Lost in Space” within the first three days that the streaming service made it available this month. That’s a promising start for the remake, already one of the outlet’s more popular series after the phenomenon of “Stranger Things.”
The Nielsen company shows that many “Lost in Space” viewers binged. The average viewer of the series watched two and a half hours a day.
Within three days, Nielsen says nearly 1.2 million people watched the premiere season’s 10th and last episode — a clear indication of how many people quickly watched the entire season.
Nielsen says that roughly 10 percent of all TV viewing now is through streaming services. Half of that streaming viewing was on Netflix.
