Netflix is still not available on Linux platform. One of the reasons being, Netflix says that providers demand strong DRM (digital restriction management) which makes it hard to make content available under Linux.
This is also one of the reasons Netflix is not available on Android. I think its time for Netflix to follow Apple and force providers to offer content without DRM.
It's less about technology available, it seems more about the 'politics' and controvercial DRM implementation.

A review created a week go says this “Update netflix version in chromeos plugin check“, This plugin check is included in all devices including Alex, but not on CR48 ( Was that a step to keep that from leaking ? ) This plugin is now part of the few included in Chrome OS, PDF, Google Talk plugin etc.
