What to watch before the Emmys

Last Thursday, Netflix netted 14 nominations for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, most of them for the standout original series House of Cards. This marks the first time streaming content has been nominated in top categories, and it’s a well-deserved milestone. Great TV is great TV, regardless of the way it’s delivered to our screens.

The Primetime Emmy Awards air on September 22nd, which leaves plenty of time to catch up on the nominees in our favorite category, Outstanding Drama. Warning: it’s nearly impossible to stop watching these once you’ve started.

    If Netflix legally deliver their service for Latin Amrrica, why don’t you allow the Netflix channel to be downloaded here (in Latin America)?
