Netflix and Amazon Prime on DVR

When I used the Netflix or Amazon Prime apps on the DVR, does it go against my monthly data usage?  It doesn't go through my XFI Gateway.

So you have some other internet service that your DVR uses to access Netflix or Amazon Prime?

No, but internet and tv both come over the same line so doesn’t necessarily need to be on my network to use bandwidth.
Just trying to find out if using the DVR to access netflix and prime will save me data usage compared to doing it directly through the apps on my tv.

Amazon and Netflix (and any other Internet app) listed through the dvr is counted the same as if it was an app in your tv or elsewhere
