Streaming services have revolutionised the way we watch TV - no longer must we suffer waiting for an entire week before we see a new episode of our favourite show. 

There's a world of content at our fingertips, but what are Kiwis watching the most?

Netflix, one of the most popular streaming services, has released a list of what it says are the most watched films and TV shows on its service by Kiwis in 2019.

At the top of the list is comedy film Murder Mystery, starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. 

Next, a good old thriller - Michael Bay's 6 Underground, starring Ryan Reynolds, was second. 

Despite launching just over a week ago, fantasy series The Witcher made the top ten, coming in third. 

Isn't It Romantic, the fantasy romance starring Rebel Wilson came in fourth, followed by another film all about love - Falling Inn Love in fifth place.

Falling Inn Love is set in New Zealand, which might help explain its wild popularity here. 

Another thriller, Triple Frontier, came sixth. Starring Ben Affleck and Charlie Hunman, the film was released in March and received great reviews, even landing fourth place on Rotten Tomatoes list of the Best Action Films of 2019.

Martin Scorsese's acclaimed mobster film The Irishman also did well, coming in seventh.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the film based on serial killer Ted Bundy, came in at number eight - showing everyone loves a bit of true crime. 

Award-winning documentary series Our Planet came in ninth, voiced by none oher than the legendary Sir David Attenborough.

And last but not least, there was The Highwaymen - a drama thriller about two policemen trying to catch notorious outlaws Bonnie and Clyde.
