Sense8 launches on Netflix with audio description and more

Today a Netflix original has launched, with audio description. It’s a thriller called Sense8. Below is the description.

One gunshot, one death, one moment out of time that irrevocably links eight minds in disparate parts of the world, putting them in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger. Ordinary people suddenly reborn as “Sensates.”

below is a link to the Netflix original.

in other news, Netflix does not have any immediate plans to announce news of described Netflix originals.

A few days ago I sent an Email to quite a bit of folks in the communications department and the content acquisitions department. The below reply came in just now.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for getting in touch.

As mentioned previously we’ll be rolling out AD content on an ongoing basis, but there is not a set list or RSS feed available.

Users are able to search for AD enabled titles through the user interface.

As you know we work hard to continually improve the experience for our members when viewing movies and shows on our service, and as promised we’ll be sure to share any additional news relative to AD when relevant.

The Accessible Netflix Project will continue to document future Netflix originals that release with AD. If you would like to blog for us, join our team!
