Here’s What’s About To Hit NetflixBy: Chris Crum - February 7, 2014
As you know, content comes and goes on Netflix. Each week, we’re bringing you a list of titles that you’ll be able to stream in the U.S. in the coming days.
This week’s list isn’t the most exciting one we’ve seen in recent memory, but just remember, House of Cards is coming back on the 14th. The company announced this past week that it’s been renewed for a third season. We also learned that Carrie herself (Sissy Spacek) will be joining the still as-of-yet original thriller coming to Netflix last year.
Here’s what’s about to become available.
