House of Cards

Entire second season can be streamed on Android, the web or via Chromecast

Today is Feb. 14, and we all know what that means — that's right, season 2 of Netflix's acclaimed political drama House of Cards is now available to stream online. The entire 13-episode run was pushed live at 12:01 a.m. PST, and is available to subscribers through Netflix's web presence, as well as its mobile apps.

On Android phones and tablets, you can to head to Google Play and download the Netflix app to get started; on a Chromebook (or any other laptop) you'll want to use the regular website. And don't forget Netflix's Android and iOS apps support Chromecast playback, so owners of the streaming dongle can can beam Frank Underwood onto the big screen using a phone or tablet.

Whether you're going to savor every episode or blow through the season in one binge viewing, hit the comments and let us know how you'll be watching using your Android devices. (For the benefit of new viewers, let's try to keep it spoiler-free.)

Already on my 4th episode. I'm liking it very much so far, I wonder if they will make a 3rd season. Watching it using my Google TV.

xtremevicky says:

They have renewed it for the third season.

They have already announced there will be a third season ...

Can't help but wonder if this is a paid advertisement. It's not exactly news that Netflix shows can be watched on android devices. Lots of people like HoC (and it's always good to get more of what you love), but if we're going to get news posts for each new show on Netflix it might be time to get my android fix elsewhere.

Perhaps Alex was just so excited about it, he had to share. I would feel the same way if The Wire was resurrected for a surprise 6th season.

Hell yea. Now thats a good show.

Come on, man, get your AC paranoia straight. If it were a paid advertisement, it would've been Jerry writing "House of Cards is out, I'M WATCHING IN ON MY MOTO X BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST."

emayekayee says:


I shared it on Facebook. I was not paid by Netflix. But if they want to throw some money my way that'd be cooooooooool.

TenshiNo says:

It's also possible that Alex figured that due to the popularity of the show, and the fact that it was the first of its kind (developed exclusively by a streaming media service) that some people on here might want to know. Plus, "movement" on the site (new articles) helps keep its rankings up. ...AND it means that people search for "House of Cards" now might "accidentally" discover Android central.

At least he kept it short and to the point ;)

ayg says:

Its one of the best dramas on TV right now for those of us who don't like mystical thrones or early 20th century British aristocracy.

gotzaDroid says:

Finished the second episode. It's sure as hell delivering!

I'll have to watch on my phone, can't get the TV to myself long enough at home to watch it.

Do what I do: tell the kids when they pay for the TV, they get to decide what's being played on it all the time ;)

Chromecast baby!! Chromecast.. have one on every TV in the house!! :)

Every time I try to build a house of cards, it always seem to come crashing down. :(

davemacd says:

I'm still angry at Netflix that I can watch season 1 with commentary on every device EXCEPT my Android devices.

Watching every episode via Chromecast!

Joe H. says:

On a mix of Roku, Android Tablets/Phones, Smart TV, Chromecast, and one old Google TV box on my kitchen tv, and maybe even on one of the computers... so, on a ton of devices :-)

Binge chromecasting for sure.

CBanda77 says:

Oh yeah, nothing will get done this weekend, binge watching mode activated.

As I'm paying for Netflix I would want to watch it the best way possible. Which isn't a phone while sitting on a bus.

Kvoth says:

No, because I live in a densely-populated, technologically-developed country with one of the highest smartphone penetrations in the world... that doesn't have Netflix. Boooo!

swagsaunders says:

I can't wait to get off work to watch it!

h0ruza#AC says:

Yes I will. Thank you Netflix for a cracking show and releasing it to everyone at the same time.

Never saw season one. What's it about?

eahinrichsen says:

It's a documentary about a guy who's building the world's biggest house of cards.

Spoiler alert: in the season finale, the whole thing gets knocked down by his cat.

And in season 2, he kills the cat. Then goes on to redo his house of cards

I wasn't interested, thought it was about politics. But that actually sounds pretty good. I'll give it a try.

Nope watching it on TV after work. I only use mobile Netflix when im not at home.

prlundberg says:

I tried watching the first season, but eventually realized that watching a show about how crooked Washington can be is rather depressing. I know it isn't a documentary, but it's not that far off either. FoxNews, MSNBC and the like have burnt me out on politics, I can't stand them or shows like this anymore.

TenshiNo says:

Since I'm working the day job today, and DJ'ing tonight and tomorrow, I will *try* and watch a few episodes this weekend. And let me just take a moment to say "Chromecast, FTW!" :)

havanahjoe says:

I will be watching on my Chromecast, playing from my Nexus 5 or Nexus 7, just like I did with Season 1. I binge watched the first season, but this time I'll be watching with my boyfriend, and doubt we'll watch it all in one sitting.

DCBamBam says:

I confused . how are we going watch this if the Netflix app doesn't work

Deke218 says:

It works for everyone else who posted here. Try uninstaliing and installing again. I had to do that a couple of times.

I'm going to try to keep it at 1 episode per day, but I don't think I have the self control.

randall2580 says:

Will absolutely be using my GNote 3 and Chromecast to watch this great series!

Red Ed says:

Hecks Yeah! Watching through my Android tablet and PS3

Sam Sabri says:

No way. HDTV or bust.

rudyy50 says:

Will be watching via my Roku 3.
(To the poster who mentioned being tired of Washington political corruption, I'm only watching because I'm hoping to see Zoe, Claire, and ... naked.)
Edit: I don't watch more than one episode of any TV show per day, and sometimes not even every day.
