Media Center>Netflix: House of Cards
Deberg_1990 10:49 AM 01-31-2013
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 know. I was referring to the possibility that he had already watched all of season two.

Sorry for the confusion season one ep 11. I'll never get a car with a push button ignition. I find myself almost not wanting to see what's going to happen next in some scenes. Unless of course it involves partially nekkid hotties.

House of Cards Season 2 drinking game: (Note: haven't watched yet so these suggestions might be totally wrong)

1 sip per F-bomb, or for any Apple, Sony or pork-related product placement, or Stamper making a phone call

1 drink every time ANY character interacts with Remi OR every time Zoe publishes something on Slugline OR Claire mentions the CWI by name

2 drinks every time you see bare buttocks or a woman's breasts

Start and continue drinking every time Frank breaks the fourth wall and talks to the audience OR every time the "intrigue" musical cue plays

Finish your drink:
- for any product placement that was not mentioned above
- Frank makes a reference to being from South Carolina
- Peter Russo is mentioned

Episode 1 was f'ing crazy. Guess that explains a certain character's quotes about having to watch the season to find out what happens.
