There are two ways...

1) Play-On - I've heard that this works... sometimes.
2) SageMC Netflix Plug-in + Capture Card Loopback - A very hackish solution, but it due to some quality work by the plug-in dev it actually works amazingly well once you've got it set up.

But neither of them are anywhere close to being as easy or clean as the official support in other boxes like Roku or Xbox.

(You should be able to forum search for details on either solution)

In my experience, most Netflix movies cannot be watched with PlayOn. Only those that are downloaded as .mpg files and not .m3u files, since the SageTV either ignores these .m3u files or just can't access them.

Most TV shows and other episodic content in Netflix appears to be available on .mpg files. Most movies are .m3u though.

The same holds true for Hulu on PlayOn. TV shows and clips work fine, no movies yet that I've been able to get to work. (Again, .mpg vs. .m3u)

Updating to latest PlayOn and SageTV beta (2/25!), doubt if it will change anything, but keeping my fingers crossed.
