Game of Thrones Season 5

March 16th, 2015 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

The new season of Game of Thrones will screen in this country at exactly the same time as it does in the United States and in many other countries around the world.

That means the first episode of season five will be on Sky TV channel SoHo at 1pm on Monday, April 13, Sky head of publicity Lisa Franklin said in a statement. 

I will be busy every Monday afternoon from 1 pm to 2 pm.

As well as the early-afternoon screenings, SoHo will repeat each episode in New Zealand at 8.30pm the same day.

Great move by Sky to show it simultaneously. People don’t want to wait half a day during which they read reviews.

Game of Thrones maker HBO said simultaneous screenings would take place in 170 countries and territories.

Good on HBO for also making the access rights available.

Games of Thrones Attack Ads

Mother Jones says:

 In HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones, there are dragons, sword fights, and zombie armies. But the heart of the show is intense political intrigue. Alliances are forged and broken; backroom deals are cut; principles are sacrificed. It’s a dirty game. Yet imagine how much more unsavory it would be if super-PACs and dark-money outfits existed in the Seven Kingdoms. We did—and here are the results.

Here’s two of their ads:


Heh, both excellent. I love Game of Thrones.
