Netflix worried about new frontal lobe streaming service

Innertainment, the new media service that allows subscribers to stream content directly inside their frontal lobe, is challenging Netflix to remake itself once again.

The fledgling Silicon Valley company promotes its new technology, which requires a small surgical implant, as the “television of the future,” broadcasting movies and television shows into the minds of their users.

“Without any sort of visible device, you watch movies and television shows in an instant,” boasted Innertainment CEO Michelle Cooper, who refused to comment on rumors the device causes a rare form of violent seizure.

Netflix officials denied any concerns about Innertainment. However, Netflix’s powerful Washington lobbyists are pursuing legislation that would prohibit Innervision from streaming virtually any content.

“We welcome the competition,” said Maurice Patterson, Netflix PR representative. “We just want to restrict the content they can show as much as possible. It’s just business.”

Media reports suggest that Netflix is working on its own frontal lobe streaming service. Code-named Mindflix, the service reportedly allows users to receive visual information via radio waves, so their minds can be constantly streaming the best movies and television series at all times of day.

“We might have something once we get past the side effects of crippling madness,” said a Netflix employee, who requested anonymity.
