The online streaming service has confirmed it has beaten Foxtel in the battle for the Australian rights to the acclaimed series.

Netflix told Daily Mail Australia: ‘We can confirm that all three seasons of House of Cards will be available on Netflix in Australia, at launch. We are thrilled to have the show return as it coincides with a second wave of diverse original series that will launch at the same time globally in all countries where Netflix is available, including Bloodline, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Marvel’s Daredevil, Grace & Frankie and Sense8.’

Netflix has yet to confirm when exactly in March the service will go live in the country, with most outlets reporting either March 1st or March 31st as the most likely date.
