Netflix is featuring the latest in the Black Mirror saga with a film named Bandersnatch. Much like the well-known Netflix hit Stranger Things, this episode takes place in the 80s. The difference is that Bandersnatch is an interactive experience.
Audiences can "choose your own adventure" during the movie, with five main endings possible and multiple variations within. Of course, participating in the interactive show requires a supported device.
Netflix subscribers can watch Bandersnatch on a web browser, or on several mobile devices. The Apple hardware that currently supports watching Bandersnatch includes:
- iPod touch
- Mac computers
That's right, the Apple TV does not currently support interactive content from Netflix. In fact, Apple TV and Chromecast are both unable to play the film. Netflix has not released a linear version of Bandersnatch for conventional viewing.How to play Bandersnatch on Apple TV
