DirecTV On Demand

Can someone please explain to me how the On Demand feature works on DirecTV? I'm not talking about the content you have to pay extra for (movies, special events, etc). I'm talking about the content that comes for free. The way I understand it is that I have to connect my receiver to my internet connection and then "download" the shows I want to watch, right? I also understand that certain channels, for example HBO, have extra content available On Demand.
I'm new to DirecTV, coming in after years of being a Comcast cable subscriber. Now, I hate to give props to Comcast (their antics are well known to all and have been well documented, so I won't bore you with the steamy details), but if what I understand of DirecTV is true (its setup), then Comcast was a lot easier and more practical because you basically had to do nothing but watch whatever the channels made available to their customers.
Can someone clarify how On Demand works on DirecTV? Thanks.
