It may or may not ultimately be more popular, but it's the same in that it's a series produced by Netflix, all of the episodes for a season of which became available simultaneously. That's why I asked whether there was a thread created for that, wondering how that thread handled people watching the series at different rates. I've personally run through whole seasons of these 13-or-fewer-episodes-per-season things in a week or less if I was enjoying it.
That article that you linked just said that the first episode is somehow available, offering no more explanation of that than you did (except implying that XBL Silver members can install and run the Netflix app to watch it, presumably without subscribing to Netflix, but that just helps Xbox owners).
EDIT: I see how it works; if I log out of my Netflix account and go to netflix.com/houseofcards
it will display its series page and will run the web player to stream the first episode. If I mouse over any of the other episodes it pops up "start your free trial to watch this episode". Not that it should concern any of us, since if you're looking at this thread you probably are a subscriber. I was just curious
