UPDATE!: Google Chrome now runs Netflix naively on Linux as of February 2015 thanks to added support for Encrypted Media Extensions. GOOD BYE MONO/SILVERLIGHT WORKAROUNDS AND HELLO HTML5! WOOO HOOO!

Watching Netflix on Linux has never been easier thanks to Pipelight, a wrapper for using Windows plugins such as MS Silverlight in Linux browsers.

Install Netflix on Linux – Ubuntu 14.04

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable  
sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install pipelight-multi  
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight  
sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop 

Excuse me while I binge-flix….
