Netflix on Linux

Update: Only need Latest version of Chrome without any plugin

Method 1:

1.  Chrome version 37 or higher.

2.  Install User Agent Extension

User Agent Extension

With everything ready the last step is to modify the user-agent string of the browser to pretend we’re accessing Netflix from a platform it likes.
Modifying the UA string can be done in a number of ways but the easiest way is to install the free User-Agent Switcher Extension from the Chrome Web Store:
Installing this will place new icon in the right of the Chrome toolbar. Right-click on this item and select ‘Options’. We’ll now add the required HTTP agent with the following string (thanks to Mat Enders for these steps):
  • Name: Netflix Linux
  • String: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2114.2 Safari/537.36
  • Group: (is filled in automatically)
  • Append?: Select ‘Replace’
  • Flag: IE

Method 2:

1.  Install pipelight ( http://pipelight.net/cms/installation.html )
