Hello and thank you for the question. You don't get Netflix on DirecTv- they are a Satellite Carrier- not affiliated with Netflix at all.

The way you would get Netflix is through a device connected directly to your TV itself (nothing to do with your DirecTv box).

Any Smart Blu Ray player will give you this capability on your TV, and you would simply connect it to the TV using an HDMI cable. These players are fairly inexpensive, and you simply need to connect it to the TV, then switch the INPUT over to the player. Then you can setup your Netflix or what ever other APPS you intend to view on the set through the player.

A good example is at the link below:
