Someone Got Netflix Running on an NES

with one comment

Hackers these days don’t necessarily do things because they should, they just see if they can.  That’s definitely the case in this post on Gamespot where a handful of hackers got the Netflix streaming service running on an NES via a specialized cart but on an unmodified NES.  You can watch House of Cards running on it in the video below in all its streaming text and 256 color glory.  Netflix on NES, now I’ve seen it all.
