Netflix has been working for a long time on a couple of my systems using the wine solution.
AND get this crazy folks
linux, virtualbox, old windows license = also working, for an even longer time - which is just as much cheating as wine, but come on, this isn't hard.
I have even had netflix working on an old blackberry running BBOS6 - though technically that was just a stream from a linux host system I could still control it with the blackberry.
The point is, what the hey hey?
*I suppose since I'm in Canada I should point out that my netflix isn't HD, perhaps that's the issue for people, these solutions probably break at HD workloads.
