Netflix Inc. is going to start telling the world how many people watch its shows -- at least the most-popular ones -- giving investors more data on what subscribers are watching.

The streaming service will release lists of its most-popular TV shows and movies globally each week. They’ll be ranked by the amount of hours people spend watching them, as opposed to the number of viewers, Netflix said Tuesday. The company will also release country-specific lists without the hours.
