Looking for a TV show...thought it was Black Mirror

Yappi

Go Buckeyes
There was an episode of a TV show, probably on Netflix where a man could not see his child (maybe ex-wife too) as some sort of punishment. When he saw his child, he could only see a pixelated version of the kid. This was a futuristic punishment and any time the punished saw this person even in pictures, it was always pixelated.

Anyone remember a show like this? I thought it was Black Mirror but couldn't find the episode. Any help?

Black Mirror
2014 (Special)
Episode: 7
Original Air Date: 16 December 2014

On Christmas Day, Matt and Joe start talking about their past for the first time, after five years that they have been stationed together in a remote cabin. Matt used to help single men seduce women. His clients had optical implants that allowed him to see through their eyes and give them advice in real-time using the "Eye-Link" technology. His main profession, however, was subjugating artificial copies of clients' consciousness, stored into bean-sized chips called "cookies", into docile personal assistants in charge of running smart houses. In turn, Joe reveals that after a domestic squabble, his pregnant girlfriend Beth "blocked" him, using a technology that turned them into incomprehensible white and grey blurs to each other. The block lasted for years, preventing him from talking to Beth or the child, until Beth died in an accident. Joe found the child in Beth's father's cabin, but discovers that the little girl was not his daughter. Angered, Joe killed the child's grandfather and left. After Joe tells Matt that the girl also died in the blizzard, trying to get help for her grandfather, it is revealed that everything is taking place inside Joe's cookie, where Matt was trying to extract Joe's confession, in exchange for his own release from prison. Due to the illegal, voyeuristic aspect of his side job, him being incarcerated due to a deadly incident that occurred on his watch, Matt is registered as a sex offender. This results in him being universally blocked following his release (as a red blur to signify his status as a sex offender). Joe's artificial consciousness remains trapped in the cabin, having its time perception changed to 1,000 years a minute.

Cast : Jon Hamm, Rafe Spall, Oona Chaplin, and Natalia Tena
