GOT is preceded by Pretty Little Liars, which had 9.5% more demand overall.

Series with new recent episodes – Preacher, Prison Break, and The Flash – have generated relatively steady demand and continue to gain more views than the older titles on the overall list.

The launch of the new season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black on June 9 propelled the prison drama series to number one on the digital original series chart in Germany. The prison drama had 9% more demand than Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

House Of Cards also received high demand as it returns with its fifth season.Germany-Originals-120717

The show received second spot on the list and is followed by 13 Reasons Why.

Netflix’s GLOW has newly appeared on the list. The series is a fictionalised account of the 1980s syndicated women’s professional wrestling circuit and stars Alison Brie and Marc Maron.

The dramedy series had roughly twice as much demand as Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in Life.

Amazon’s The Grand Tour reappeared in the chart in fifth place, but the digital originals list remains largely dominated by Netflix which takes up the rest of the top spots.
