[broken record] Netflix will appear on Ubuntu/Linux when Shuttleworth plays ball with them. By his own admission, he's not interested in playing ball with Netflix. The person you have to persuade is not Netflix, but Shuttleworth.

Ahem. And I quote:

OMG Ubuntu: Has Canonical spoken to Netflix about bringing the service to Ubuntu TV?

Shuttleworth: Netflix is EVERYWHERE so i think it would be a natural conversation to have, but i’m not aware of the status one way or another, and besides, today is not the day for announcements.
