The streaming service, which brought us Stranger Things and Orange is the New Black, is planning trials of new technology allowing viewers to have control over what happens during their shows.

"We’re doing work on branch narratives so you are actually making choices as you watch," a source told the Daily Mail. "All the content will be there, and then people will have to get through it in different ways. We’ll see how it plays out. It’s an experiment. We’ll see if it gets much success. For creators, it’s new territory."

Netflix will run a trial on a children's show first. It's not yet been confirmed whether the new format would be exclusively for new programmes or added to existing ones too.

We can't wait to try this out.
