YES! There is a Netflix App for Linux!

So, Dr. Bill, you found a Netflix app for Linux? Well, yes, and no. I saw it on Nixie Pixel’s Linux tips, so technically Nixie found it, I just took advance of it!

So, how do you do it? Like this!!! (“$” below represents your Linux command prompt, which may vary!)


To install on Ubuntu or Linux Mint –
Start your terminal session

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop


For Fedora (only for 32 bit systems) –
Start your terminal session

You need wget first:
$ su -c ‘yum -y install wget’

Installing Netflix:
$ wget -c

$ tar -xvzf Netflixplayer.tar.gz

$ su -c ‘sh’

To run Netflix from the command line:
$ sh /usr/bin/
