At least widevine is requires locked bootloader. Im not think is good idea ship SBC with locked bootloader. Second is requires licensing.

I don't think it requires much lisence, odroid xu4 7.1 Android has Netflix, but then Oreo and pie did not. It's also got play and root. So it's definitely possible.

XU4 roms also does not have widevine. Some old version of Netflix work on XU4 but only play SD quality. In any case HD requires widevine.

that apk did work odroid. the only issue now is that when launched the app flips sideways and stays that way until a video is selected. still better then nothing tho.
