There’s a report out that Netflix is going to let viewers decide how some shows end.  Bloomberg reports Netflix will roll out the interactive feature of choosing endings on shows including Black Mirror.

Projects released before the end of the year will follow the model of some kids shows already on Netflix, such as Puss in Boots.  The technology follows the pattern used in video games. Netflix is working on shows based on video games, including a take on Minecraft that’s due by the end of this year.  

Would you like to be able to select the endings of your favorite Netflix original programming, just like the old video game “Oregon Trail”?
