In order to satisfy the security requirements, you need to start with an platform approved by NetFlix. The Sigma SoCs used in prior PCH players never received NetFlix's approval. As far as I know, the 891x family does not yet have NetFlix certification, but I'm sure it is on Sigma's 'to-do' list. I would not hold my breath, though.
