Just FYI: Netflix’s New Interactive ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Episode Won’t Work on Apple TV

If you’re planning on watching “Bandersnatch,” Netflix’s new interactive episode of their popular horror series “Black Mirror,” don’t expect to do it on your Apple TV.

MacRumors:

“Bandersnatch,” the new episode, is an interactive choose-your-own adventure style show where you make the decisions on how the story progresses. As it turns out, the interactive feature does not work on the Apple TV, Chromecast, the Windows App, or browsers using Silverlight. 

A Netflix support document says its interactive content is limited to smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, iOS devices, and Android devices that are running the latest version of the streaming service’s app.

If you attempt to watch the interactive episode on your Apple TV, you’ll see a message saying the interactive content can’t display on the device.

From the Netflix website:

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is only available on devices that support interactive content. No linear version is available. 

If you attempt to watch Black Mirror: Bandersnatch on a device that does not support interactive content, you will be instructed to switch to a supported device.

“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” hit Netflix on Friday morning. If you’re watching the episode on a compatible device, you’ll see a red badge in the corner of the display.
