    A lot of people still have Nintendo Entertainment System, many of us still turning it ON to play some retro game. But some developers see more functionality in this hardware. One of them on Netflix Hack Day - Winter 2015.
    Show the world that 8-bit home video game console can play netflix app.

    With this hardware:

    - Central processing unit (CPU), the NES uses an 8-bit microprocessor produced by Ricoh based on a MOS Technology 6502 core.
    - The NES contains 2 kB of onboard work RAM. A game cartridge may contain expanded RAM to increase this amount. The size of NES games varies from 8 kB (Galaxian) to 1 MB (Metal Slader Glory), but 128 to 384 kB was the most common.

    This is impressive because its look like this is full VOD service!

    But in graphical performance they still need to learn from that guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjNPTzOe7u0
