Netflix releases official House of Cards season 2 trailer in 4K ahead of debut on 14 February

The second season of the Emmy Award-winning House of Cards will appear exclusively on Netflix from 14 February and the media streaming service has released a two and a half minute trailer of what you can expect across the 13 new episodes. What's more, it's not only presented on YouTube in resolutions up to 1080p, but it's also available to watch in 4K on a compatible display.

On YouTube, 4K is presented as 2160p and Netflix has previously announced that the new series will stream to select Ultra HD TVs in 4K format. Offering the trailer in 4K too is a nice touch.

The new season sees Kevin Spacey return as Francis Underwood and we'd advise anyone who is yet to catch the first series to give it a miss to avoid spoilers.
