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.
