The self-quarantine that has been recommended almost globally due to the coronavirus outbreak has caused a massive increase in home entertainment.

An international streaming guide called JustWatch assists over 15 million people in what to watch on Netflix, Amazon Prime iTunes, and more. Since the lockdown recommendation, JustWatch has compiled some numbers to show just how many countries around the world have increased their viewership in streaming online video.
