It’s back for real this time. After over a year (minus one 20-minute “technical glitch” preview two weeks ago), Netflix’s Emmy-Award-winning “House of Cards” went live at 3 a.m. EST this morning.

Fans can see Frank and Claire Underwood continue their machinations, now from a hard-won White House perch. Launched in February 2013, ‘‘House of Cards’’ was among the first major series to release an entire season at once, a move that fed into viewers’ desire to devour several episodes at a time instead of having to wait a week to see another installment.
