"Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price — and they'll more likely pay for it rather than steal it." - Kevin Spacey
Tonight television history was made with 'House of Cards' winning an Emmy for Best Director Drama Series which of course went to the great David Fincher (paying attention Oscars?). With this win 'House of Cards' became the first online only television series to win a Primetime Emmy Award.
The company has promised to create a minimum of five original programs a year, with plans to double that number in 2014, and has budgeted $300 million for shows like House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, and Orange is The New Black. Not shy about its ambitions, Netflix has said that "the goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us."
What does this mean for the future of television? Is Netflix a game changer?
