Recently, a Netflix on Ubuntu solution was posted at Is there a way to stream Netflix?

Is there a similar solution for PlayOn media server?

PlayOn (not playonlinux) is a media server that lets you watch many different networks and internet streams by transcoding the stream and serving them to any device capable of receiving media streams. It supports plugins and has many such plugins for different streams. Further info can be found on their website http://www.playon.tv/

I would much prefer a solution that doesn't involve running it in a virtual machine.
