Hello, my name is Rusty. Netflix doesn't come through Directv, do you have a blu-ray, or smart TV?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I have a blu Ray
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 5 months ago.

What is the model number of the Blu-ray? Is it currently connected to your TV?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Any option other than blu Ray
Expert:  littlerusty2005 replied 5 months ago.

Yes. There are many options. To get Netflix, you must have one of these devices:

Smart TV with the Netflix app

Roku box

Media player with the Netflix app

Blu-ray with the Netflix app

Netflix is an app that connects to the internet, and streams online movies. You must have a smart device to run Netflix. Do you have any of these devices?
