Rejected petition Make "box-office" data from on-demand entertainment public in the UK

We should establish a "standard of data sharing around digital entertainment consumption" (e.g. purchases/views) where all platforms delivering on-demand media to UK households, like Netflix and Disney+, can report the same metrics on how specific media products fare and better inform the UK public

More details

The digital space is becoming less of a public space and more of a private, walled garden, without any regulation on transparency or validity on information reported. As digital entertainment becomes more entrenched behind private platforms, the current public "box-office" data from cinemas and TV becomes less accurate with the risk of skewing claimed revenue measurements. Since COVID started, all "box-office" data recording has stopped while video on-demands habits have boomed.
