I can’t use Netflix 5.x on LineageOS on my Fairphone 2. Directly after start (before login) Netlifx is telling me:
| This app is not compatible with your device.
| You can download a compatible version from the Netflix website.
Could someone else with a Fairphone 2 with LineageOS please test this!?
You don’t need a Netflix account. It’s enough to test if the login screen appears.
If your device is rooted, you can install Netflix 5.9.1 from here:
On my “Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini” / GT-I9195 / serranoltexx* Netflix 5.x works fine on LineageOS 14.1. So this isn’t a general problem about LineageOS.
The “compatible” version is Netflix 4.x, which is missing some features of Netflix 5.x.
I’m using the official lineage-14.1-20171107-nightly-FP2-signed.zip and Netflix 5.9.0 on a recent Fairphone 2 with the new cameras.
I wrote some more details here: https://bugtracker.fairphone.com/project/fairphone-lineageos-on-fairphone/issue/22

*Just also successfully tested Netflix on my “Samsung Galaxy S2” / GT-I9100 with LineageOS-14.1 and addonsu.
