Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) doesn't have House of Cards to itself anymore. The critically acclaimed series became available on Blu-ray and DVD as of Tuesday.

We knew this was coming. Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) began taking pre-orders for the four-disc set just weeks after the show rolled out as a streaming exclusive on Netflix. Now that it's here, will this help or hurt Netflix?
