If you're a Netflix subscriber, you can actually head to this link right now to watch what appears to be a 48-minute preview of the show.

Showing that your favourite streaming service has a sense of humour, Netflix launched the premiere of the first episode of Netflix LIVE! today, and then promptly cancelled the rest of the series.

April Fools' falls on a Saturday this year, which means companies in on the gag are trotting out their pranks a bit early.

When you go to the Netflix homepage on March 31, you will see "Netflix Live: Sneak Peek". Yet, as Arnett reaches for weird metaphors and anecdotes to fill the silence while a burrito slowly turns in the microwave it's hard not to fall into an amused trance.

Netflix has unveiled its newest original program: Netflix Live. After some fast and furious Googling, I discovered there was once a time when Netflix discussed potentially live streaming sports - but only if Netflix owned and created the sporting event.
