/// How to Buy Netflix’s "House of Cards" on Amazon

April 3, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Perhaps you’ve heard that Netflix is showing “ House of Cards ,” a new TV series starring Kevin Spacey. But maybe you don’t have an $8-a-month Netflix subscription, or don’t want to try the service’s free one-month trial. Or maybe you just don’t like streaming video. Here’s your answer: You can buy the series, on DVD, this summer. From Amazon, Netflix’s most serious video rival. This isn’t a cost-effective solution — the series’ first 13 episodes will cost $44.96 on standard DVD , and $52.99 on Blu-ray  – but presumably some of you will find value in a physical object. (For one thing, you can re-sell your discs .) The bigger (but smallish) point here is that even though this is a series commissioned for and funded by Netflix, it still isn’t Netflix’s series. Netflix’s money bought it an exclusive first “window” to stream the show. But Media Rights Capital, which actually produced the show, has the rights to sell it in other venues; Sony is handling distribution duties in the U.S
