First Episode of Netflix’s HOUSE OF CARDS Available to Non-Members; Full Series Available to Xbox Users This Weekend

House of Cards isn’t Netflix’s first original series, but it’s the most important to the streaming service’s future.  Arrested Development has the benefit of a built-in audience, but House of Cards is built from the ground-up (aside from being a remake of the British series), and Netflix is hoping that the clout of executive producer David Fincher and star Kevin Spacey will help draw in viewers.  Judging by the trailers, the show looks to have a highly entertaining and pitch-black take on modern American politics.  All 13 episodes are now available online, and if I weren’t working, I’d be marathoning them right now.

Netflix is hoping it can lure in new members by offering the series premiere for free on its website.  Furthermore, all Xbox users can watch the show this weekend provided they’re already Netflix members.  No Gold Xbox Live membership is required.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer for House of Cards.
