This Is What Netflix Looks Like On A NES

You'd think being able to watch Netflix on your computer, your tablet, your phone, your smart TV and your newfangled video games console would leave the average binge-watcher content with their content. 

You'd be wrong. 

At a recent hack day, the technical wizards of NetflixOpenSource managed to get the cavernous vaults of Netflix's library working on an unmodified Nintendo Entertainment System. Sure the visuals are awful, with House of Cards barely visible through the two-bit fuzz, but it's a feat of engineering the likes of which bemuse our simple minds. 

Now, if you can make it run on a pocket calculator we'll be really impressed...
