    I got a netflix trial a few days ago to see how Netflix is like these days(Haven't used them in about 5 years). The service works great for almost everything yet for somethings I have to keep refreshing as much as 10 times, on some like Star Trek Voyage, I could do it over200 times and the it keeps coming up with the following message

    I have Linux Mint 17 Mate Edition with Google Chrome running the user agent :
    Code:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/38.0.2114.2 Safari/537.36
    I could watch the series that do that on my phone, but even with the note 3 it still is way to small to watch a tv show for a while.

    You don't need to change your user agent anymore, try watching the series without it changed and see if you still get that error.

    I'm going to try to mirror it to my pc via usb.

    Update:
    It doesn't work that well on the Android-Screen-Monitor app(too slow and netflix app not display video),ill try the other one to see if it can play video back well

    Second Update:

    I was able to get netflix working on Linux without any tricks including the fake user agent, when I updated a few flash related plugins, when I was attempting to do the mirroring.
