Flex for free but only if you have a gateway?

If the "Flex" streaming box is now free, why on Earth do you need an xFi gateway? Internet is internet regardless of the gateway right?

The communication is through the software in those compatible gateways. Personal modems don’t have it

Thats the impression I get.  For me thats not going to happen.  I am not going to pay the ridiculous monthly price for the Xfinity modem.  I will just get another roku for my other TV.  At least with the Roku, you can actually watch live TV that you already pay for with the Xfinity stream app
