The Netflix original series House of Cards sparked a revolution in how we consume content. There NBC was with its week-long wait times, breaks for the holidays and sheer tonnage of commercials. Then Netflix came and dumped entire seasons of House of Cards on its subscribers — and it didn’t hurt that the show was critically acclaimed either. This week Netflix and Xbox Video are teaming up to keep the hype for the show alive, as or now absolutely any user can snag the first episode of House of Cards at absolutely no charge.
We’ve hoped to get our hands on the new Media app and updated Friends area for the Xbox One ever since Microsoft announced them this past Monday at its Gamescom 2014 Xbox Media Briefing.
