Netflix sent a show about space into space

by John_A

Netflix is already available in 190 countries, so where’s the next logical place of expansion? Space, obviously. As part of Netflix’s latest hack day, a team sent an iPhone with downloaded Netflix content into the heavens with a GoPro camera, reaching an altitude of approximately 115,000 feet. The show kept playing, albeit without sound because in space, no-one can hear you scream. Subtitles on, then.

Of course the show in question was Star Trek, although it seems illogical that the team opted for Star Trek: Discovery, which isn’t actually available to stream on Netflix in the US (it’s available on CBS All Access).

Other cool hacks from the day included a virtual 3D Bay City (from the Altered Carbon Universe) that serves as a functional Netflix home page, and a panning vertical player that lets commuters on packed public pan around full screen portrait videos by tilting the device, so no more elbows in faces.
