Game of Thrones is a huge risk for HBO. It’s an epic fantasy miniseries with a huge budget. Will viewers watch? They are doing everything they can to make sure they will.
The series, which debuts Sunday at 9/8c, will air back-to-back encores on HBO at 10:05 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.
In addition, the premiere episode will be shown across six HBO channels simultaneously the next day at 9 p.m. on HBO, HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Comedy, HBO Zone and HBO Latino. HBO2 will also air encores at 10:05 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.
That’s a lot of time slots. They really want to make sure you don’t miss it. Will you watch?
