To keep its viewers glued to its network, Netflix has launched its latest feature which is an interactive show which allows users to select the way they prefer for development and story and its ending. At the beginning of this weekend Netflix unveiled this new system by extending its famous television series Black Mirror into 90 minutes. When people access the episode through their computers then they are given a short tutorial about how to keep a trackpad within reach and check out the different options of storyline given while they view the episode.

People watching particular episode were given option to choose Yes and No about situations that could befall the characters in following scenes and episodes. If users wanted to stop the show if they did not like the episode that had shaped out of their choices then they would simply stop the show and start from the beginning which would remove all the choices about plot changes that had been made in the past. Black Mirror is a popular show which has short stories showcasing popular fears people have about new technology which is considered to be intrusive and invades privacy.

The latest episode of choose your adventure had a story called Bandersnatch that contains a story of a computer coder who creates a computer game which has been inspired by a novel. A game by this name was apparently created in 1984 for ZX Spectrum but was never published. The episode trailer has offered hints that it is likely to be it its first actual entry into interactive television. In June last year Netflix had released an animation program for kids called “Puss in Book” which allowed viewers to select different show endings as per their wish to make it more interesting. The firm has teamed up with several firms like Dreamworks and American Greetings to create complex stories.
