Netflix has finally made its way to Linux

43 sec read

Remember when we mentioned that Netflix streaming would soon finally, finally work on Linux? Tada! It’s done. There are a few caveats, though. First, it’s not working on all Linux distros , just Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora for now. Second, it… only works in Chrome. Why? Because the whole thing relies on the Network Security Services library, and only the latest build of Chrome for Ubuntu is currently up to snuff on the front.

Linux is a widely used operating system and yet it has taken considerable time for it officially receive support for Netflix. The world’s largest online video streaming service could not be accessed through Linux machines previously, unless some trickery was employed that spoofed Netflix into thinking that the machine was running something entirely different, but that changes now. It is now possible to access Netflix through Linux however there are a few caveats to keep in mind. Not all flavors of Linux have received support but some of the most popular are covered. Ubuntu, Fedora and Ubuntu-based Mint are all now capable of letting users access Netflix without having to resort to trickery. Folks on Debian or Gentoo, etc, are out of luck for now.
