Just as it had promised, Netflix today released its original series House of Cards to its many, many subscribers. There's more good news, however, as the the streaming giant's giving those without the necessary account credentials a chance to see what the show is all about, giving non-paid users access to the very first episode at no cost. Meanwhile, those who shell out the monthly fee will be able to catch all 13 episodes of House of Cards in one go, with Netflix obviously taking a different approach than what we're accustomed to seeing in new series from the likes of HBO or Showtime. Naturally, should folks like what they see from Kevin Spacey, Kate Mara and the rest of the cast, they'll have to sign up for the service in order to keep up with the story -- which, we'd say, is exactly what Netflix wishes for.
