That is kind of like comparing Apples, to Bananas. They are all different types of services. Netflix is the lowest cost with which you can stream lots of shows and movies but they are not NEW. As in they did not just air yesterday or last week, all the things that are on Netflix have been out for at least close to a year. With XFINITY and DirecTV these are television services so you are going to get newer things and more channels/ choice but they cost substantially more.
