Netflix's Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is now accessible on iOS, and really easy to navigate with VoiceOver

iOS & iPadOS
Hi Subject says it all. Just wanted to report that Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is now fully accessible on iOS, and really enjoyable to navigate! I'm not sure how many of you reported the bug to Netflix, but I did a couple of days ago. I want to commend Netflix for such a fast response, and a great job on fixing accessibility! Best Malthe

Hi Black Mirror: Bandersnatch is a multiple-choice movie within the Netflix app. To find it, you can just search for it in the Netflix app for iOS' search field. Best Malthe

If you're subscribed to Netflix, it's free. If you're not subscribed, then you have to subscribe in order to watch it.

I'm really happy to hear about this. I had been meaning to look into this one, but the choices were red originally only by the spotty image reader in voiceover. This is great news. 've heard good things about this one. Now I wonder if all their "interactive" tv shows are accessible or only this one. I also wonder if my PS4 will speak the text too, since a majority of the Netflix app is accessible on the PS4 also. Stuff to look into.

Yes. It's a bit frustrating, but that's the nature of most choice based narratives like this. It's supposed to heighten the sense of tention. And it does that for us, but for the wrong reasons.:)

Just kidding. If I recall, It should default to a choice. Keep in mind the show is meant to be replayed though, and you should be able to scene select to jump back to a previous state.

Thank you for letting us know that this is now accessible using iOS. I suppose that I will use airplay to watch this on the apple tv while using my phone to make the choices. I really wish that I could just use the apple tv itself, but this is way better than nothing!
