An unofficial Netflix app for Ubuntu.

This is basically a WINE and Silverlight bundle with some tweaks to make it work better for Netflix. I found it more convenient than doing my own Silverlight install under WINE in Ubuntu.

How To Install Neflix on Ubuntu

To install, from the termainal, enter the following command lines:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop

Netflix on Linux (non-Ubuntu)

If you are not using Ubuntu you can roll your own variety under Linux by installing WINE and then Silverlight. More information can be found on the Silverlight page at WineHQ.
