Xbox Live members with an Xbox 360 or Xbox One can watch Game of Thrones free starting today, Microsoft has announced. The offer runs through April 16 and will give Game of Thrones fans who missed the premiere, don’t have access to HBO, or otherwise couldn’t watch the episode the chance to do so.
On top of that, HBO and Xbox have “joined forces” to deliver a variety of extra Game of Thrones bonus features to Xbox Live members.
And if that’s not enough to get you ready for Season 5, HBO and Xbox have joined forces to bring you a variety of Game of Thrones content in a special experience available this week when you sign into Xbox Live. Preview Season 5 with trailers, pledge your allegiance to a house, go behind the scenes with on-set tours, and test your Westeros knowledge with trivia questions asked by Game of Thrones cast members.
The offer could very well be a means to get you hooked on purchasing episodes through Xbox’s own channels, or even subscribing to HBO to watch the series on your Xbox. If you’re a big enough Game of Thrones fan without another way to watch, it’s a pretty excellent way to do so.
There are however other alternatives, with the first four episodes of the show’s fifth season leaking online over the weekend. However, on top of being – you know – stealing, those leaked episodes are only in standard definition.
If you have already seen the premiere, or just want to know what it was about (spoiler warnings, though), you can check out our review of the episode, and give your own review in the comments.
Offer valid for U.S. customers only.Source: Xbox
