The caveat to the Netflix news is that, while nearly all smartphones work with this type of content, only certain TVs and streaming players are compatible with Netflix's interactive adventures - Chromecast and Apple TV do not, for example.
British TV series Black Mirror is known for the mindbending twists and turns that feature in every episode.
"Choose Your Own Adventure" movies are nothing new. Now, Bloomberg is reporting this choose-your-own-adventure storytelling is close to launch, and it's kicking-off with an upcoming episode of Netflix's sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror.
You've heard of Netflix and chill; now it's time to Netflix and choose your own adventure.
Netflix upended the business model of television by delivering new episodes of a season all at once - letting viewers watch shows on-demand rather than live. (Nothing like binging some psychologically-scarring television around the holidays!) But the real news is that in one episode from the new season, viewers will be able to interact with the story and make decisions to determine the ending. Whereas last year's shows were meant for children, Netflix's latest work is being developed for a more mature audience.
Netflix has been thinking a lot about the future of media and how engaged its viewers will or won't be with its content.
However, most episodes show the underlying conflict between applying human consciousness and technology-assisted automated living.
That's mildly interesting in and of itself, we guess, but perhaps far moreso when used in conjunction with Black Mirror, a series that has always been known for its bleak, often horrifying endings.
The Los Gatos, California-based company is developing specials that will let its users decide the next storyline, Bloomberg said, citing people familiar with the matter.
Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who has frequently sparred with President Trump , announced he would support the nominee Thursday night. She was also by his side as her husband was interviewed by Fox News this week about the allegations he is now facing.
Maddox , a 6-year-old autistic boy who doesn't speak, reportedly vanished from the Gastonia area park on Saturday. Both parents begged the public to call the tip line at 704-869-1075 with any information about their son.
But on Saturday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho blamed United States sanctions for the lack of progress since then. Mr Trump grumbled that commentators would cast him as "unpresidential" for describing Mr Kim in such glowing terms.
Of those seven previous Ryder Cups , I've sat out one session, and that was at Medinah. "We came here to win something else". You can't second guess it; it's not worth the effort and you'll just get yourself into trouble.
Now, through the Apple forums , it is being reported that the new models have issues when it comes to taking a charge. And it might just be a good alternative to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max if you're upgrading from an older device.
The AP reports that the joint project this month is the first to remove landmines from border areas since the early 2000s. The United Nations Command supervises the DMZ, which is almost 250 kilometers long, and has troops stationed there.
Some in the audience also grumbled during Trump's remarks when he said "we reject the ideology" of globalism. Only under the guise of foreign interference do the American people feel that they need someone like Trump.
