The holiday season witnessed a remarkable 37% sequential increase in the total viewing time for iQIYI's film channel, with Pegasus 2, Article 20, and YOLO claiming the top three spots. Variety shows channel also saw a significant 35% growth in viewing time compared with the previous period, driven by rising popularity of immersive detective and agricultural themed experiences.
