Season Four!!!

Spain
HBO has officially renewed GAME OF THRONES for a fourth season. (And I'm almost finished with the first draft of my script. No, sorry, not going to tell you which one it is).

Record ratings for our season three premiere, "Valar Dohaeris."

Also (sigh) record levels of piracy.

On other topics... no, no, Peter Dinklage is NOT being replaced by Warwick Davis in the role of Tyrion. That was just HBO's little April Fools joke. (I was so busy I forgot to make my own April Fools joke). So calm down, boys and girls. Peter is still with us.

Piracy record
I wouldn't worry too much about the piracy record. Almost everyone I know downloads the episode because they want to see it as soon as possible. The only legal option that HBO gives them is to pay a local cable provider every month for a package of channels which is something like 4 channels. Most of these people don't have cable TV as it is so it ends up being something like $60/month just to see Game of Thrones...

If there was a way to subscribe to HBO for only game of thrones and without paying a local cable provider I'm sure the piracy rates would drop off.

The good news is that pretty much all of these people buy the DVD's when they come out or at least other game of thrones merchandise. If they couldn't 'pirate' the episodes then I'm sure they would have never seen the show.
