Can I watch Netflix via DTV ?

I have a Netflix streaming account and currently watch it by switching the TV to a Fire Stick and go from there.

In DTV menu/settings/apps/tvapps I see a few (builtin?) apps but no "app store/download".  Can I watch Netflix streaming via my (internet connected) DTV system?

TIA

Do you have DirecTV Satellite or DirecTV Stream service?

I'm satellite.  Question is whether I can load an app in my sat system that (sinced I'm connected to internet) I can watch Netflix streaming without having another box (and HDMI swapping).  Thanx for clearing that up.

No, DTV has nothing to do with steaming services that are competitors.

DirecTV has nothing to do with Netflix or any other TV provider (streaming or otherwise). They are competitors so have no way to use them.

To clarify DIRECTV STREAM (a separate provider from the same owner) though as a proprietary box as an option (not just Roku or other 3rd party devices), their box does support downloading other apps.

Difference is that DirecTV was built as Satellite being the primary delivery method with internet connected as a secondary perk (not to support competitors). But DIRECTV STREAM is trying to be optimized for internet connected which can better balance that as is the same delivery method as those other apps.
