Netflix becomes first online TV firm to win a primetime Emmy

hocNetflix continued to break new ground for the online TV industry after it scooped its first primetime Emmy Award as David Fincher, who directed Netflix-exclusive ‘House of Cards’ series, won the ‘best directing of a drama series’ category — as CNET reports.
