HBO’s massive hit show premiered on Sunday to a record 6.6 million viewers, not including those who watched it through means other than standard TV. HBO Go, HBO’s video streaming app, actually crashed on Sunday under the weight of all the users attempting to watch the episode. The good news is that if you haven’t watched it yet, Xbox and HBO have teamed up to provide another way to watch all of your favorite characters die horrible deaths.
It has been confirmed that the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones will be available on Xbox Video. This means that both Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners will be able to stream the episode for free without having an HBO subscription. This deal is also notable because the Xbox 360 has its own native HBO Go app while the Xbox One does not.
Hurry up and get to watching because the episode will only be available from April 8th to the 14th.
Game of Thrones Season 4 airs Sundays at 9pm on HBO.
