Netflix's hit series, House of Cards, has been a hot topic of conversation due to its nine Emmy nominations from the Internet platform.

While in attendance at the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival delivering the James McTaggart Memorial Lecture, Kevin Spacey (Francis Underwood) spoke about the model that Netflix has used, which has parlayed the company into success.

"Clearly, the success of the Netflix model, releasing the entire season of House of Cards at once, proved one thing: the audience wants the control. They want the freedom. If they want to binge, as they've been doing on House of Cards and lots of other shows, then we should let them binge," he said.

The veteran actor continued on about the typical viewer, and how they deserve the right to pick and choose how many episodes and at what time they'd like to watch them, which he says is the way of the future.

"And through this new form of distribution, we have demonstrated that we have learned the lesson that the music industry didn't learn: give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price, and they'll more likely pay for it rather than steal it," Spacey added.

Kevin Spacey admits that agent "would never allowed him" to do TV

No current air date for House of Cards has yet to be announced. However, it was recently projected to start season 2 at some point in early 2014. Be sure to keep checking back for more of the latest information on the popular series.
