No, Netflix content isn't available to watch via the Stream apps or website so doesn't appear in the search.

However, you can stream Netflix shows from their website: Netflix.com

Yes. You need to have an account with Netflix to view their content. Netflix is not connected with Comcast. It is a separate company.

Thanks ComcastDan. That's how I like it; short and sweet. And correct.

I can't say I understand a single one of the other replies.

Because, 1,  of course I can stream Netflix from Netflix(!); and, 2, as it happens I do have a Netflix account but, in fact, you don't need one to get Netflix listings in your Ways to Watch list.

I have a netflix account that I signed up for on my TV but I don't see any type of search function. I had to scroll through the movies for 20 minutes before I found what I was looking for.  So, I figured out I need to go to Netflix on my PC and use the search and add whatever I'm looking for to my favorites so its easy to find when I watch on my tv.
