***This is your own personal Netflix seeing as how you are no longer able to access Netflix on "unofficial" devices. Check the comments for great info.**
Over at Linux.com you can find instructions on making a very inexpensive headless Plex Media Server. You will need a working PC to start up the installation by formatting an SD card and setting it up with NOOBS. A little configuration work on the Pi, linking it to your locally stored video libraries and online content such as CNN and Netflix and you have a media centre ready for use, for well under $100. Maybe you could consider making one as a gift for someone deserving. The full instructions and parts list can be found here.
"No, you don’t have to buy an expensive, bulky PC. All you need is a Raspberry Pi 3, a hard drive, an SD card and a mobile charger. It should all cost less than $100."
