Netflix briefly releases third season of 'House of Cards' early
Netflix briefly released the third season of House of Cards online on Wednesday, two weeks before it was slated to premiere on the streaming site.
The season was supposed to drop on February 27, but users noticed that it became available Wednesday afternoon. After a short period of time, the list of episodes disappeared. However, episodes that were already streaming remained streaming—so those who loaded the episodes before they were yanked presumably can still watch them.
Netflix could not be immediately reached for comment.
Update: The show’s Twitter account acknowledge the slip up with a Frank Underwood-esque quip.
In a statement, Netflix said: “Due to a technical glitch some Frank Underwood fans got a sneak peak. He’ll be back on Netflix on Feb 27. #nospoilers”
