Comcast subscribers have the ability to watch House of Cards without Netflix thanks to a new deal with Sony Pictures, Variety reports.

Comcast will sell the first season of the show through its Xfinity Store in addition to to other titles like American Hustle, Breaking Bad, Captain Phillips, Cloud With a Chance of Meatballs 2, The Amazing Spider-Man and 21 Jump Street.

Of course this isn't the first time people have been able to legally watch House of Cards without Netflix. The first season was released on DVD last June, and has ben available for purchase from other digital media sellers.

According to Variety, Comcast users will also be getting Orange is the New Black's first season on May 13th thanks to a similar deal with Lionsgate.

Separately, Comcast and Netflix recently reached a deal to ensure that Netflix's content is streamed at high quality for customers.

No word on when Comcast will get House of Cards: Season 2, but it presumably won't be until it's released on DVD.

The third season is currently being written. Check out this Q&A creator Beau Willimon did on Twitter last week.
