The new season of Game of Thrones is fast approaching, and to whet the appetite of very patient fans, HBO have released an extended 15 minute trailer for the shows up coming fourth season.
The trailer – Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing includes on-camera interviews with cast members including Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) and Natalie Dormer (Margaery).
The fourth season it slated to begin, here in Australia on April 7th on SHOWCASE for FOXTEL subscribers, though in a deal made with HBO, it means Game of Thrones will be an exclusive to SHOWCASE virtually blocking iTunes and Quickflix from fast-tracking the show to non FOXTEL subscribers.
The news gets even worse for those wanting to legally download the series. The deal between the two networks also means that iTunes and Quickflix cannot offer ANY episode of season 4 until FOXTEL have aired every single episode of the season.
Any people wonder why illegal downloading (especially of Game of Thrones) is so rife in Australia.
For fans not wanting to pay a minimum of $75 per month for the premium channel on FOXTEL, those with FOXTEL PLAY online subscriptions (which is a little bit cheaper) will be able to access the new episodes.
Game of Thrones, Season 4, begins April 7th on SHOWTIME for FOXTEL subscribers.
