Not to mention, yours truly watched the first two episodes of this new season.
“We are extremely happy to be able to bring all 13 chapters (episodes) of the latest season of HOUSE OF CARDS to audiences in the region on the same day the series is released in the U.S.,” says Jennifer Batty, EVP Programming, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network.
I will not make a spoiler. “This shows our commitment to bringing programs as close to their original release dates as possible.”
“As a TV network, we have taken a bold and unique step to air the complete series in the same way as it premieres in the U.S.” says Jonas Engwall, CEO, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network. “Being first in Asia with the way we are delivering Season 3 – all chapters (episodes) back-to-back the same day as in the U.S., localized with subtitles, HD – we are confident of giving audiences in the region a fantastic TV viewing experience and we believe this will curb alternative and illegal sources for the series that historically have been used.”
I admit that I felt the importance of watching its first and second season but it was also great catching up the third.
HOUSE OF CARDS stars Kevin Spacey as President Francis Underwood in this wicked one-hour political drama series that slithers behind the curtain of power, sex, ambition, love, greed and corruption in modern Washington D.C. Francis and his equally ambitious wife Claire, played by Robin Wright, stop at nothing to ensure their hold on power.
Developed and produced by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March), HOUSE OF CARDS has earned several accolades including Kevin Spacey’s most recent Golden Globe award for Best Actor in a Television Drama, Robin Wright’s Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Television Drama, as well as Emmy Awards for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, and Outstanding Cinematography for a Single-Camera Series. It was also honored as one of the American Film Institute’s TV Programs of the Year for 2013.
RTL CBS Entertainment is available on Cablelink Ch 37, Destiny Cable Ch 53, Dream Ch 17, SKYcable Ch 53(SD) & Ch196(HD)
