North Korea’s Netflix Knockoff Will Stream On-Demand Propaganda

According to a statement made by the country’s state-run news organization, the North Korean government is launching a state-sponsored equivalent of Netflix. The announcement is pretty unbelievable considering most of the country does not have functioning Internet. North Koreans (and visitors) will be able to access the service through a set-top box called Manbang, which roughly translates to “everywhere” in Korean and operates on the government’s intranet. – Michael Nunez, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/LQA1Ptp
