  1. WTF. Why on earth are they restricting the *OS and CPU architecture* you can watch it on? It can’t *just* be performance, can it?

    (I don’t use Netflix because it’s not available for Linux-on-ARM, which would leave me with a home cinema I couldn’t watch anything I was paying for on. No thank you. Bluray ripping might be a sodding drag but at least it works.)

  2. @Nix presumably the latest Intel CPU has some whizbang new security features which the latest win10 has drivers for and which are used to keep the owners of the PC from interfering with the path from the Netflix app to the video output (DHCP protected natch).

  3. According to the fine article, because Edge (which is Win10 only) has a DRM plugin the studios found acceptable, and Intel CPU because it does H.265 usably. (Not for the security features – I woulda thought that too, but I’ve seen 0 real-world uses of the Management Engine.) Also because the Pirate Bay is in need of marketing, I guess.
