Netflix: House of Cards

Premieres tomorrow. All 13 episodes drop at once.

Heres an interesting nugget from a Forbes column:


http://www.forbes.com/sites/dorothyp...s-this-friday/



But BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield thinks that if House Of Cards is a success, Netflix could also start demanding a fee from the broadband suppliers that plug their fat pipes into our homes and let us stream House Of Cards in the first place.

You can read Greenfield’s full report here (subscription required) but his basic idea is that the cable companies are taking about $40 bucks a month from you for your Internet service and not sharing any of that with the content side because for the most part, they are paying networks like AMC and Discovery a per subscriber fee on the cable side.

If Netflix’s exclusive programming takes off and viewers demand it, Netflix could be in a position to start taking a per subscriber fee from the cable guys on the Internet side. It’s not a completely unprecedented idea. According to Greenfield, ESPN gets a per sub fee for ESPN 3 from broadband.

It would be a bold move on Hastings’ part and one that he’s not yet in a position to make. But if shows like House Of Cards help Netflix become the next HBO, the service could be looking at a whole new stream of revenue.

I watched the first 2 episodes and man, that's a lot of Spacey. I'm not a fan of self narrating to begin with. I like the storyline but it may be a bit too much Spacy for me.

His narration made me think that the show was going to be like American Beauty where he completely melts down and brings others with him.

four episodes in, it's obvious that's not the case. I really dig the show and fully embrace Netflix becoming the new HBO.

I'm three episodes in and will definitely keep watching. The acting is great, story is compelling so far, and I love the aesthetic. I definitely see the Fincher touch.

This show is incredible. I'm six episodes deep and the name of the show is just perfect. Spacey is ****ing incredible in this role. The only thing that really bugs me is I'm able to predict certain things that are going to happen. But there have been some compelling twists and turns throughout it. I'll probably have it finished by tomorrow night.

I like to marathon the shit out of series, which is one reason I like Netflix so much. I only have time to do it in the Winter so the release of this was perfect, and I love that they dropped all the episodes at once. They spent a ****ton of money on this series, so I hope it's well received and continues.

I'm usually not a big fan of that, but he is killing it. The subtle looks at the camera just crack me up. He is perfect for the narrative.

Netflix also had an Original series last year called "Lilihammer" but it didnt get near the amount of praise or pub. Ive never watched it.

Cool stuff.

So I'm 6 episodes in and I'm already sure its one of my favorite shows and that its one of the best shows on TV. I honestly feel like I'm watching HBO or AMC.

If I didn't care about having a somewhat social life, I would marathon the 2nd half of the season tonight. Instead I'll watch 2 or 3 episodes.

The one thing I don't like about this format is that it takes away from the focussed/structured discussion that normally happens for a TV show on internet message boards.

Yea, i was going to mention that earlier. Good point.

Part of the fun of stuff like Lost, Walking Dead, Justified is the discussion and anticipation of the weeks episode and whats to come.

Buck start a thread for each episode after you watch it and want to discuss it. It won't be the same but it's the best I've got.

I guess I am weird I don't really see discussions of shows with people on the internet that big of a deal at all. There are times where I look into that if I feel confused by the unfolding of a show to see an angle I missed or didn't fully understand but other than that it is pretty rare I tap into that.

Dropping a whole season at one time? Bring it on.

Netflix spent huge money on this. If they didn't buy it, it'd be on one of the other big, traditional players.

I've watched a few, and the quality is there. It'll be interesting to see if amazon and Google (YouTube) follow them. I'd love to see production move away from TV towards modern distribution. This is a big deal, assuming it pays off for them
