Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Canonical has recently updated a library that would allow native Netflix support for Ubuntu 14.04, at Netflix’s request.
Ubuntu Touch is stable enough for daily usage, but it also requires apps. While it has not been officially confirmed yet, but it looks like the Netflix developers are already working at a native Netflix client for Ubuntu Touch.
This is what a Netflix representative told Chibueze Anakor, an Ubuntu enthusiast, when asked about Netflix support for Ubuntu:
“You’re on right train of thought with this one! Look out for the touch version soon.It’s just that we have to take it one step at a time, but we just couldn’t keep Ubuntu users in the dark for too long. Look out for only good things from us and Ubuntu in the future.”
As a reminder, Canonical has been working a lot at Ubuntu Touch, the mobile version of Ubuntu. For now, Ubuntu Touch is officially supported only by the Google Nexus 4 smartphone and the Google Nexus 7 2013 tablet, but BQ and Meizu are expected to release Ubuntu Touch powered smartphones.
Meizu even confirmed that the first Ubuntu Touch powered Meizu phones will be released in December.
