A Cartridge Hack That Brings an 8-Bit Version of Netflix to the Original Nintendo Entertainment System

Netflix NES

Netflix employees Guy Cirino, Alex Wolfe, and Carenina Motion participated in the company’s latest developer Hack Day by bringing an extremely low-resolution version of the popular video-streaming service to an original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). The trio was able to accomplish the feat without actually modifying the console itself, instead tweaking a cartridge to deliver video that included an 8-bit version of the House of Cards intro.
