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.

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.
