Sky has announced that Sky On Demand and Sky Go customers will have full access to Seasons 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones from the day the third season launches on Sky Atlantic HD.
From April 1, Sky customers will be able to enjoy the first two seasons of the award-wining drama, Game of Thrones, to celebrate the much-awaited launch of Season 3 on Sky Atlantic HD that same night.
Based on books by George R.R. Martin, the fantasy drama launched back in April 2011 and is widely believed to have redefined the fantasy genre, having already won a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a Screen Actors Guild award.
“Game of Thrones has a huge fanbase in the UK and we are thrilled that from April 1 we will be able to give our customers access to Seasons 1 and 2 On Demand, as well as the new Season 3 episodes exclusively on Sky Atlantic HD, less than 24 hours after the US broadcast,” said Director of Sky Atlantic HD, Elaine Pyke.
The third season of Game of Thrones will be aired on Sky Monday April 1 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic HD and SD, less than 24 hours behind the US broadcast. It should be “the season that [we] have been anticipating from the very beginning”, said series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
Season 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones will be available to watch on Sky On Demand or via Sky Go, an app for smartphones, tablets and PCs that lets Sky customers watch Sky content on the move. The service currently has 3.1 million unique users, and with the recent launch of Sky Go Extra, allowing users to download episodes to their smart device to watch offline later, that number is sure to grow.
