Netflix is the new home of 'Black Mirror', at least internationally.

The streaming service has picked up the exclusive international rights to new episodes of the dystopian sci-fi series.

However, Channel 4 will still have first-look rights to new episodes in the UK.

"It's all very exciting – a whole new bunch of 'Black Mirror' episodes on the most fitting platform imaginable," said series creator Charlie Brooker.

"Netflix connects us with a global audience so that we can create bigger, stranger, more international and diverse stories than before, whilst maintaining that 'Black Mirror' feel. I just hope none of these new story ideas come true."

That last part was referring to the recent allegations about a bizarre college society initiation ceremony in which David Cameron is alleged to have been involved.

In one episode of 'Black Mirror', the prime minister – played by Rory Kinnear – shared a romantic moment with a pig on live TV to secure the freedom of a princess from a supposed terrorist.
