Netflix Reportedly Launching Choose Your Own Adventure Option For Shows

Netflix to let viewers choose endings of shows like ‘Black Mirror

Black Mirror first aired on BBC before making the transition to Netflix.

Is this the future of interactive TV, or just an ill-advised gimmick?

The company introduced interactive episodes previous year with children's specials, like a story about the Dreamworks' character Puss in Boots. The plan will kick-off with an upcoming episode of Black Mirror, which will enable viewers to choose which storyline they want to see.

This news comes from Bloomberg, who have reported a single episode of the upcoming fifth series will be interactive.

Trump said at the Saturday night rally in West Virginia: "He wrote me handsome letters and they're great letters. Donald Trump has said that he and Kim Jong-un "fell in love" after writing "beautiful letters" to each other.

In doing so, he became the first quarterback in National Football League history to throw for 400 yards in three straight games. The caveat here is that both Winston and Fitzpatrick know who will be under center next week against the Chicago Bears .

It's not clear how the Black Mirror episode will function, though it's bound to be a lot more complicated than the interactive stories Netflix has already been produced.

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.

Black Mirror Season 5 is set to release on Netflix sometime in December 2018. I could be in the minority here, though, and Netflix is certainly counting on this idea drawing in new customers. In addition, the new season will feature an interactive episode, an extension of both the show's experimentation in different genres and Netflix's initiative to turn viewers into active participants.

Netflix is about to let you decide how your favorite show will end. By blending elements of video games with traditional television, the company could create a formula that can be applied to any number of series. The original lineup of interactive programing on the platform was announced in June of this year and included the children's programing titles, Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale, Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout. And if the Black Mirror experiment works, this could be the start of a whole new world of programming for the ever-growing streaming service.
