Your browser does not support the video tag.

Simple fix! Not Chromebook problem. Microsoft just thinks they can bully everyone has to do everything there way

Yes but HTML5 doesn't have support for DRM which means you could right click save as...and download the movie...if that happens Studio's kill Watch Now.

Digital Right Management is required for copywrited works. That is life. Before Netflix used to use plugin but they dumped it for Silverlight because playback worked better on more stuff (Mac and Windows). They also have a background API that that streams to IOS and Android. It has special signed keys that allow access to the service. Netflix is fully HTML5 now but video support won't be...ever...there is no standards for encrypted DRM in HTML and there shouldn't be...
