Sorry but the only work around is to use virtualbox or another VM with windows :(  The DRM that netflix uses is only available for silverlight and not available under moonlight :(

Netflix originally use Flash, which worked great even on older P4 computers. Then they 'teamed up' with Microsoft to create a better system using Silverlight. People who could stream smoothly with Flash were now stuttering, and you know the rest of the story. . .
