Netflix and Black Mirror have now collaborated on an advert. ‘Introducing Netflix Vista’ features a society of the not-so-distant future, where everyone can access Netflix anywhere as a result of being so in tune with technology that they’ve, essentially, become cyborgs. In short, they have a chip and lens device installed in their heads. Hard to believe? Well, not really.

Clearly, something wicked this way comes…
