Game of Thrones series 4 to premiere in UK at the same time as US

Brilliant news, right? Well, asides from the fact that means it'll air at 2 am...


The fourth series of hit HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones will be available here in the UK at the same time as it is in the US.


That’s right. Just as our fantasy loving cousins on the east coast of America sit down to watch episode one it will air here too. At exactly the same time. 

Exciting news, right?

Well, actually, it’s really only good news for those very dedicated fans amongst us, as – yep, you guessed it – that means it’ll be on Sky Atlantic at 2 am. On a Monday morning. 

That might be a stretch too far for some Thrones fans – it is on at the much more sociable time of 9 pm too, remember – but personally, we can’t think of a better reason to turn up at work sleep deprived and bleary eyed on a Monday morning…

Game of Thrones series four premieres in the UK on Monday 7 April at 2:00am. (And 9:00pm…)
