Now that I've explained why you're having troubles with Netflix on Linux, let's address your real question: How can I get Netflix running under Linux.
Currently, it seems the leading option is to use pipelight. The official documentation recommends the following steps (Mint is an Ubuntu derivative, so don't worry that the section heading says "Ubuntu"):
Enter the following commands in your terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pipelight/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --install-recommends pipelight-multi sudo pipelight-plugin --update sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlightUnfortunately, even after pipelight is installed, you may still need a User-agent switcher, as Netflix may be checking to make sure you're running in a Windows Environment.
See what I mean about the solution being rather kludgy?
