Netflix received Emmy nominations Thursday for two of its original series, House of Cards and Arrested Development.
With the entertainment industry recognizing what the streaming service is doing, it’s time we realized that Netflix is the new standard in premium channels.
House of Cards was nominated for best drama series alongside critical darlings Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Homeland and Downton Abbey. This is the first time a series that wasn’t viewed on broadcast or cable TV has received a nomination. Whether or not the series actually wins the Emmy is academic because the nomination is the industry recognizing something that viewers have known for a while.
Something else viewers have known for a while: If you want to enjoy quality TV, you need Netflix.

Oh snap. I can't wait for Netflix to keep cutting these regular cable bitches.
Also I finished Orange is the New Black, it was so amazing I'm still not over it!
