When I had a beefy enough front-end (now I am using an Ion), I found
that VMware player with a Windows VM inside produced a pretty
convenient experience.  I could start the VM from my a MythTV menu
item, and I had it configured to open the Netflix Watch Now browser in
full screen mode on startup.  I did need to use a mouse to control the
VM, but I found it to be a quite workable solution.

It isn't truly converged, but it was good enough for me.
