Thankful for American Horror Story! Available Today in the US


It’s Thanksgiving week, so what’s a blog post without giving thanks for certain things in your life?  I’m thankful for the typical: family, friends, good health, and my job (this is not because this is my employer’s blog, although I figure, it can’t hurt).  I’m also thankful for the less essential, yet still appreciated things like new albums from The Killers and Mumford & Sons, seasonal gingerbread lattes, and incredible TV shows like American Horror Story, which is available today in the US!

We’re thrilled to bring our US subscribers FX’s hit show, American Horror Story!  For those of you not familiar with the critically-acclaimed show, we know you’ll enjoy watching the Harmon family as they move from Boston to Los Angeles seeking relief from their messy pasts, only to find out that they have taken up residence in a house haunted by its former residents. Gripping and scary, this present-day story stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, and many others including a performance by Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon, which earned her Golden Globe, SAG, and Emmy awards! Be sure to keep an eye out for Kate Mara, who also stars in the Netflix Original Series House of Cards, arriving on February 1.

Happy Thanksgiving!

First Look Trailer: Netflix Original Series ‘House of Cards’

With less than three months to go before our premiere, we’re proud to share the first trailer from the Netflix Original Series House of Cards.


From acclaimed director David Fincher, award-winning playwright and Academy Award® nominated screenwriter Beau Willimon, and Academy Award® winner Eric Roth, this wicked political drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C.

An uncompromising exploration of power, ambition and the American way, House of Cards stars Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey as Francis Underwood, the House Majority Whip. Underwood is the politician’s politician – masterful, beguiling, charismatic and ruthless. He and his equally ambitious wife Claire, played by Robin Wright, stop at nothing to ensure their ascendancy. The series also stars Kate Mara, Corey Stoll, Kristen Connolly, Michael Kelly and Sakina Jaffrey.

House of Cards combines the best of filmmaking with the best of television. Netflix members worldwide can instantly watch all 13 episodes of the first season of the show beginning on February 1, 2013. In offering the entire season at once, Netflix is giving viewers complete control over how and when they watch the show. Learn more about the series and explore the characters at Netflix.com.
