Plug n Play...

WiFi only:
USA = Mi Box S, I think they have been on sale for as low as $39

+ Ethernet and more USB ports....
USA JetStream 4k Ultra HD

Other options:
MECOOL Pro L or Pro W or A95X Pro (weak WiFi on the S905W chipsets):
(both can also run the superior LibreELEC / CoreELEC Kodi)

Any of the i Series Intel or AMD Ryzen iron would be able to CPU Software decode 1080p h264 Netflix using the Kodi Leia Netflix Addon.
You will not get any HDR with X86_64 Linux / LibreELEC Kodi Leia.

Not sure about 4K HEVC Netflix CPU software decoding using X86_64 Kodi Leia. Not even sure if anyone has tested that yet.
4K Netflix uses HEVC video compression.

A Fire TV Stick 4K would be a much much cheaper and more reliable 4K HDR Netflix alternative.
