House of Cards

I am super impressed at the intrigue political drama known as House of Cards (wiki).  I’ve heard it was good but didn’t know how good until yesterday.  So far there’s 4 seasons with a confirmed 5th season to come out sometime this year.

But that got me wondering… how does Netflix fund these shows?  I’ve been told TV/Movie shows are expensive.  Here’s an interesting infographic from a google search.  And another.  And another.  Subscription content is here to stay.
