Game Of Thrones to start simulcast with US from next week

In the wake of the first four episodes of season 5 of Game Of Thrones leaking online at the weekend, Sky have announced they’re to start a simulcast with HBO for the fantasy series, starting from next week.

The new series premiered last night.

As well as retaining the 9pm slot on Sky Atlantic each Monday, episodes will also go out at the more nocturnal time of 2AM, with HBO screening the episode at the same time.

It’s going to be very interesting to see the few heads in KCLR coming in with a lack of sleep on a Monday morning after taking the late shift to get the first taste of a new episode.
