Can’t wait! Game of Thrones Season 5 will premiere on 12 April 2015.
And, in case you haven’t heard, there’s even better news. On the same day the new season starts, HBO will launch HBO Now, a stand-alone service that won’t require a subscription from a cable provider. Since Comcast is slightly less popular that Joffrey Baratheon, this eliminates one of the major reasons people have been reluctant to cut the cord.
HBO Now will cost $14.99 a month, initially through Apple TV, and through other devices like Roku by August. (Apple TV is dropping its price from $99 to $69.)
Great news all around.
