Still, it hasn't done much to rejigger traditional formats including 25-minute sitcoms, hourlong documentaries and two-hour movies, the report noted.

Currently, Netflix has a children's show called Puss in Book that uses the "choose your own ending" function. (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. These types of narratives can have complicated deals and productions; studios are still trying to figure out pay scale for writers due to longer scripts. Fans were quick to discuss the new idea, with one writing: "As if Black Mirror couldn't get more disturbing". Season four, which premiered past year, starred Rosemarie Dewitt, Jesse Plemmons, Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson, Andrea Riseborough, Letitia Wright, and Maxine Peake. But Netflix has never tried it with a marquee title until now.

Netflix is planning to expand its interactive TV initiative beyond childrens content, according to Bloomberg. Early this year, HBO released the Steven Soderbergh series Mosaic, which launched with an app that added an interactive element to follow different story threads.

The new tariffs covered products such as food seasonings, baseball gloves, network routers and industrial machinery parts. Trump did not provide any evidence for his allegation, which he made while chairing the Council meeting.

That could soon change, said Jim Spare, the chief operating officer of Eko, a company that produces interactive shows. Last year, word broke that the streaming giant was developing choose-your-own-adventure-style shows that will bring a level of interactivity to viewing audiences.

Despite a few outliers, Netflix's interactive adventures are nearly universally compatible with modern smart devices, and now only needs some universally appealing content to entice potential viewers.
