House of Cards with Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood truly put Netflix on the map. The second season of the hit TV series is available to stream in all Netflix regions now - but you will have to wait a bit longer to watch it in glorious 4K resolution.
House of Cards Season 2
It is not often that a company makes a home run in its first try, but that is exactly what Netflix did when they produced their first original TV series. House of Cards has received universal praise and has since been awarded three Emmys - as the first internet-only TV series, too.
House of Cards season two is available to stream now in all of Netflix’s regions, including USA, Canada, Latin America, the Nordics, and the Netherlands. Netflix continues its march to become the first global TV provider, eliminating launch windows and regional content rights. You can also stream all 13 episodes of season two right now – if you want.
However, the show is still not available to watch in 4K resolution. Netflix has previously said that House of Cards season two will be one of its first TV series available in 4K, but there are still a few pieces that need to fall into place. Only owners of Ultra HD Smart TVs can stream Netflix in 4K from the start, which also basically means that you need a 2014 Smart TV as they are the only ones with HEVC support. As you know, these are not available yet, but will be this spring.
We have to wait a little longer to enjoy the first TV series in 4K resolution that Netflix intends to stream in HEVC and 15.6 Mb/s sometime in the "first half of 2014". Still, we are very excited to see what Frank Underwood is up to in this second season.
A third season of House of Cards has already been confirmed by Netflix.
