Netflix Comes to the Samsung Arm based Chromebook!!

March 12th, 2013

I love my chromebook, on my blog here you can find other posts where I am dual booting it with Ubuntu off of an SD card.  I have since added a 32GB slim jump drive for extra space, its more than I would ever need, but I thought it would be cool to have that kind of storage to move movies around or music or whatever and it was only $20 from amazon.

Anyways, back to my post subject, when I bought the chromebook I knew full well that netflix did not work with it, but at the end of last year you would get a screen like this one below:

chrome-os-error-netflix

Well, I knew from that error that it would come down the road, so I thought it would just be an extra benefit, albeit one that is a very nice feature of the device, especially on trips and such, since the device is so light and for only $249, you can’t beat it.  That day is finally here!!  You may have to grab the latest update for your device by going to settings and then help, just stay on that page, your device will update if it needs it, but if you are like most, you will have all the latest updates and you will be ready to go, enjoy!!
