its a 10 year old movie but I just "discovered" it yesterday... I guess I

Unfortunately, Netflix uses Microsoft Silverlight because of "DRM policies" they
have in place. MS refuses to release the source, or even contribute a version
of silverlight that includes DRM support to the Linux community. So, Netflix
doesn't work on linux. People have been working to get silverlight running under
wine, but until recently havent had any luck, so you will find a bunch if linux
folks running VM's just to watch Netflix.

I did not realize Netflix would not work on Linux. I just assumed I could open
netflix.com in my firefox or google chrome web browser and watch my stuff. But I
actually use a Western Digital TV Live. It can also pick up a shared network
directory in the house, if I've got a media server for instance. Plus, in
addition to Netflix it comes with VUDU which has movies and shows available as
soon as they've been released.
