Premium channel & internet

I have Direct TV as my tv service, but xfinity as my internet service. When I signed up I was also given as a perk HBO & sent a cable box.  My question is how does that work? If you hooked the box up to your tv could it get the channel from your modem...mystifying to me.  Thanks
