Netflix Gets Into the TV Business With Fincher Deal - NYTimes.com

Not content to rely on others for content

There is a new competitor for HBO and Showtime in the television landscape — and, for the first time, it is not a television network.

Netflix, the popular online film service, said on Friday that it had licensed the exclusive rights to “House of Cards,” a show that is to be directed by David Fincher, the director of “The Social Network,” and to star Kevin Spacey.

The deal immediately makes Netflix a player in premium television programming.
