Hulu has Richard Linklater's "Up to Speed" and Morgan Spurlock's "A Day in the Life," along with countless licensed international show. Netflix has Steven Van Zandt's fish-out-of-water crime drama "Lilyhammer" and the much-hyped return of "Arrested Development" on the horizon. But the true test of whether a streaming site's original series can hold its own against network and cable offerings, and garner the audience and attention needed to make sure an expensive endeavor worthwhile, will be on February 1, 2013.

Update: Netflix has now made the trailer accessible to everyone regardless of whether you have a subscription, and we've embedded a version from YouTube below.

Hulu has Richard Linklater's "Up to Speed" and Morgan Spurlock's "A Day in the Life," along with countless licensed international show. Netflix has Steven Van Zandt's fish-out-of-water crime drama "Lilyhammer" and the much-hyped return of "Arrested Development" on the horizon. But the true test of whether a streaming site's original series can hold its own against network and cable offerings, and garner the audience and attention needed to make sure an expensive endeavor worthwhile, will be on February 1, 2013.

That's when Netflix will unveil "House of Cards," its political drama developed by David Fincher, Kevin Spacey and playwright Beau Willimon, adapted from a 1990 BBC miniseries of the same name and produced by Media Rights Capital. With Spacey starring as Representative Frank Underwood, Robin Wright, Kate Mara and Corey Stoll making up the main cast and Fincher directing the pilot (written by Willimon), it's one of the highest profile new series on any platform. 

The latest good news about "House of Cards" is that Netflix has released a trailer for the series, and it look delicious -- Spacey at his silky, reptilian finest, Fincher turning his impeccable eye to D.C. The bad news is that the trailer is only available on Netflix's site at the moment, where you'll need a Netflix account to see it. Of course, you'll also need a Netflix account to watch it when it goes live, so maybe this is all part of the plan.

Check out the trailer on Netflix here.
