As kheffington said, Netflix is a service you can stream over the Internet. By using your laptop, the service would come in on the laptop only.
What the HDMI connection to the TV allows you to do is use your TV screen as a Duplicate Image of your laptop, an Extended screen, or as your Main screen.
The picture and audio you get from the laptop can then be transferred to the TV so that you can watch/listen to it there instead of your laptop.
