For me (European version) Netflix was pre-installed. In general: to see and install Netflix you need to pass SafetyNet. This means enabling Magisk Hide, clearing the data of the Play Store (then it should way "official device" in the Settings menu and maybe a patched custom kernel though I'm not sure if the latter is necessary. After that, I can see Netflix and also install it.

1 - Make sure you're aren't tripping the safetynet test.
2 - Make sure you have hidden magisk manager and magisk from detections

If you still find netflix incompatible, clear data and cache of play store and Google play services and reboot.

This worked with me, w/o the customer kernel - also EU version. Thanks!

Netflix(release 4.16.0) is working on my Galaxy S8 rooted by Magisk.
You need to add a 'liboemcrypto disabler' module to your device using Magisk. And the latest release of Netflix may not be working on rooted device.
Recommended to use 4.x

The most important is SafetyNet.
(After rooting with Magisk my test fails so I used MagiskHide Props Config and got new fingerprint certificat which allowed me to pass test)
As long as you still pass SafetyNet you are going to "see" Netflix in PlayStore and get updates. Of course use also Magisk Hide and select Google Play services.
Netflix latest, updated from store 7.73.1

Exactly, Netflix and other OTT apps work fine but Widevine drops to L3 bringing down the max supported resolution to just 480p.

L3+root isn't possible IMO.

What widevine level are you getting? Are you L1 or L3? Even if you can get Netflix installed you may be stuck with 480p due to Widevine L3.
It's impossible to get L1 on a 7T with an unlocked bootloader as of now... As a general rule of thumb, a bootloader unlock will break the L1 certification. There are some exceptions to this rule though. Some Xiaomi devices and the OnePlus 8 series (on newer firmware) are able to maintain it.

I'm on an LG v20 that I just flashed LineageOS 17.1, and I couldn't get SafetyNet passing. I followed this process for props :

Oh and I'm running Gamma Kernel v20.0, if that matters to anyone. Hope this helps! (This is in addition to MagiskHide stuff of course).

    Strange that it don't work for you, working without a problem on my latest oos beta 7t.

    Have you tried latest builds from apkmirror.com or try a older build and test
