Sure, you can start ordering the Apple Watch come Friday, but Netflix wants to remind you that you won't be able to watch streaming video on it. To that end, Netflix has posted a parody of Apple's much-hyped smartwatch. The YouTube video introduces the "Netflix Watch," an imaginary wrist-worn device that, in a perfect binge-friendly world, would let you stream videos anytime, anyplace (including in the bathroom). And why would you want such a thing? "Because life is too short to waste precious time not watching Netflix," the exuberant narrator explains. No word yet on availability.
