I just read this and it is looking like it will be possible to view Netflix on Linux soon. Google needs to work on building that third extension into the browser for this to happen.

I installed it using the PPA but whenever I login to netflix, I only get a black screen. tried purging/reinstalling, no luck.
I am on Intel SandyBridge video btw.

Thanks that was easy peasy.
You're better off installing XBMC in Ubuntu and watching any movie you want. Or get a Chromecast.
