You already pay for Netflix and HBO go, why do you have to pay for internet to use them? Why do you have to pay for a television to use them? Why do you have to pay for electricity to use them? Will the paywall whining ever stop? Just don't get it then.

Because you're paying for netflix, not gold? Without an Internet connection at home you wouldn't be able to watch netflix, without your gold subscription you wouldn't be able to watch Netflix on your xbox
Get over it kid

So let me get this straight

Internet access + (video streaming service) subscription
Internet access + (video streaming service) subscription + at least $100 more than the next most expensive device that's not a computer or TV with that service built in + $60 a year subscription for said device

There's absolutely no difference there

Is this what you're trying to tell me

But without an xbone you can still use Netflix so what's your point.

If you use a PS4/Xbone for Netflix purposes then you can still play games with it and only use one HDMI port on your TV

If you use a Roku box then you'd need to use an extra HDMI port on your TV for playing games, not to mention the Roku would be a pointless waste of money if you already planned on purchasing a video game console anyway
