Winter Is Coming....

... to the United Kingdom, courtesy of our friends at Sky Atlantic.

It will arrive at April 18 on the dot. One day after the American premiere.



So keep your swords sharp, boys and girls, and sign up for Sky Atlantic.

hmm..
So, I don't have television service. No cable, no dish, nothing. I am connected to the internet and Netflix... that's enough for me... I hope.

I'm not very knowledgeable about how the magical world wide web works its ways... as far as I can tell a yankee such as myself will be able to subscribe to this British based broadcaster via the net. Is this true?

I'm searching for a way to watch GoT as it happens. I don't wish to wait till it becomes available on blueray or through Netflix and I will not pay $75+ a month for this convenience.

If the Entertainment Pack for Sky Player is not available to those in the USA do you, or anyone else who happens to read this, know of another way to bypass a cable or satellite subscription?

I could really use the advise. Winter draws near and I'm getting anxious.

Re: hmm..
I think that you'd need a British address (at least for your credit card), and a British IP, to be able to sign up for Sky Player.

I think Verizon has a carriage deal with HBO if you are a broadband customer.. or maybe thats just FIOS, their bundled telephony-broadband-cable service.

Otherwise, there's no other legal avenue to getting the show that I'm aware of, unless HBO decides to do something unprecedented like release episodes on iTunes or something of the sort. So far, HBO has been very resistant to this sort of thing, as their bread-and-butter is cable subscriptions.

Re: hmm..
I appreciate the response but am disheartened by its content. It looks like I'll have to either don an eye patch and take up piracy or wait for its release on blueray.

I've never been fond of hook hands and peg legs though, so I guess I'll just have to wait. Dang it.
