Many of those waiting for the series premiere on the East Coast of America slammed the streaming service after they learned that it would not debut at midnight.
Netflix series often drop in accordance with the Pacific Time Zone, which means the show would air at midnight on the West Coast of America.
This therefore meant that those waiting to watch the next 13 instalments of the US drama on the East Coast would have to wait another three hours.
But some fans did not appear to understand that the time difference would be a major factor when it came to House of Cards season five release.

Many took to Twitter to slam the streaming service for the misunderstanding, with one commenting: “@HouseofCards it's midnight in DC – release the episodes. Not our problem if California is three hours behind the real world. #houseofcards.”
Another added: “We're 40min into May 30th and still no #houseofcards.”
“Ok, the time is here but still NO season 5. Come on @netflix get the show on the road @HouseofCards #HouseOfCards,” a third fumed.
Someone else continued: “I thought House of Cards Season 5 would come out at Midnight on the UK Netflix, but it didn't and I'm sad.”
