As the world of streaming assaults people’s media consumption habits, new services arrive on the market, increasing the supply of content, but also complicating the task of choosing, not to mention the pressure exerted on the wallets.
These phenomena opened space for the emergence of aggregating platforms with JustWatch, which is essentially a search engine and streaming recommendations. From the user’s perspective it is useful to search for a series and find out where it is available in stream, how much it costs to watch it, whether for free or with advertising, etc.
It is simultaneously a way of gaining access to the consumption habits of people in different territories, including in Portugal, analyzing the trajectory of the different services and the popularity of the content they are receiving.
