Interactive TV shows and movies on Netflix

These are TV shows, movies, or trivia on Netflix where you control the story, answer the questions, and more. Some interactive specials let you decide what happens next, while others are more like trivia.

You can play interactive specials on most newer devices, including

  • smart TVs

  • streaming media players

  • game consoles

  • computer browsers

  • Android phones and tablets

  • iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch

Make sure your device is running the latest version of the Netflix app to experience these specials.

If your device supports interactive specials, this “spark” will appear in the upper right corner of the artwork of titles you can play:
