HBO just told us who Jon Snow’s parents are, well ahead of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7

Even if you’re not watching Game of Thrones, you probably know the sixth season of HBO’s top TV show to date has just ended, and what a massive season finale that was. That said, HBO’s story isn’t done, and Game of Thrones showrunners still have a good 15 hours of storytelling to do, which will be spread across two new seasons. But HBO already inadvertently – or maybe intentionally – told everyone who Jon Snow’s parents are well ahead of the upcoming season. Beware, major spoilers follow below. More →

Confirmed: Game of Thrones has 15 episodes left, at the most

The sixth season of Game of Thrones just wrapped up, with the 60th overall episode of the series having been a glorious season finale — likely one of the best episodes in the entire series. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what’s going to happen next, but season 7 won’t debut until next year. And HBO showrunners confirmed what we already feared: There are just 15 episodes left in the series at most, meaning season 7 and season 8 will have less than 10 episodes each. More →

Watching ‘Game of Thrones’ with Leslie Jones is a trip (that I want to go on)

This weekend’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 6 was one of the most exciting and brutal in the history of the series.

The Battle of the Bastards lived up to the hype, but until you watch some of the episode’s highlights with Ghostbusters star and SNL cast member Leslie Jones, you really haven’t experienced it.

Game of Thrones Fan Theory Debunked

We really wanted this ‘Game of Thrones’ fan theory to be true

By on June 23, 2016 at 1:57 PM.

We really wanted this ‘Game of Thrones’ fan theory to be true

This year’s Game of Thrones season is slowly coming to an end. The season finale airs on Sunday and it will hopefully bring resolutions to several matters that have not been resolved. Sure, the Battle of the Bastards episode was one of the best this season, but there are plenty of other things happening in Westeros and Essos that need to be further explained. While we wait for the last episode of season 6 to hit HBO, we can confirm that one popular theory related to the most recent events in Game of Thrones has been officially shot down. Before we tell you what it is, you should be aware that major spoilers follow below. So don’t read any further unless you’ve already seen the first nine episodes of this season. More →

Game of Thrones Viewing

‘Game of Thrones’ ratings hits new record even before season 6 finale

‘Game of Thrones’ ratings hits new record even before season 6 finale

Game of Thrones is famous for being the most pirated show on TV, but what about its legal ratings? As it turns out, those aren’t so bad either.

When you add up all the different forms of viewing — originals, repeats, DVR and streaming — HBO’s hit series is now up to 23 million viewers from the US alone per episode. That’s a marked increase from last year, and a new high for the series.

This website automatically texts ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers to your worst enemy

I don’t know that I hate anyone enough to continually text them Game of Thrones spoilers from an anonymous number. But luckily, if I did, there’s an app for that.

As The Next Web spotted, for a simple one-off payment of $0.99, Spoiled.io will spam a phone number of your choice with Game of Thrones spoilers. The texts (which also appear to contain photos) are sent in real time, so even if your target is watching on a slightly laggy free stream, they’ll have their evening of entertainment thoroughly ruined.

Game of Thrones Battle of the Bastards

How ‘Game of Thrones’ created its greatest ever battle

By on June 21, 2016 at 2:15 PM.

How ‘Game of Thrones’ created its greatest ever battle

Last week’s Game of Thrones episode brought us one of the most ambitious battles in the series, a fight between bastards that reached epic proportions. Sure, there are some holes in the plot, but the resulting action is simply spectacular. HBO pulled out all the stops on this one to offer the viewer a glimpse of what it’s like to experience a medieval battle.

A behind-the-scenes video explaining how HBO creators and director imagined and shot the battle reveals that it’s not all computer-generated imagery. Sure, CGI was used for plenty of special effects including effects not seen before in the series, but many of the brilliant scenes in the ninth episode of season 6 were shot using actors, horses, and real props. Mind you, major spoilers are about to follow, so avoid the clip if you haven’t seen Sunday’s Battle of the Bastards episode yet.

HBO Game of Thrones Season 6 Finale

HBO is trolling ‘Game of Thrones’ fans with a very stupid decision

HBO is trolling ‘Game of Thrones’ fans with a very stupid decision

There are two Game of Thrones episodes left. Yes. Just. Two. As if that’s not bad enough, HBO is now pulling one of the silliest stunts we’ve seen in television. It’s withholding episode descriptions for episodes 9 and 10, all in the name of secrecy. Too bad the network isn’t as good as preventing episodes from leaking well ahead of their premieres. More →

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Leaks

HBO can’t stop leaking ‘Game of Thrones’ early

HBO can’t stop leaking ‘Game of Thrones’ early

Game of Thrones has a serious piracy problem. That much is not news, but with the most recent season, things are getting to a whole new level.

As TorrentFreak reports, last night’s Game of Thrones episode was leaked to pirates hours in advance of its actual release on HBO. What makes things worse is that the leak didn’t come from the usual source, press screeners — it appears to be coming from an official HBO streaming service.

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 8

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 8 recap: It feels like Jon Snow is dead, and that’s a good thing

‘Game of Thrones’ episode 8 recap: It feels like Jon Snow is dead, and that’s a good thing

Even though HBO decided to bring Jon Snow back to life rather early at the end of the second episode of the current Game of Thrones season, he’s had only a few brief appearances since then. And so far we’ve seen a Jon Snow who’s troubled about what happened, but also pretty determined to help Sansa and his family regain command of the north and then lead the defenses against the White Walkers. To some people, it may feel like Jon Snow is too absent from the show, but that’s actually a good thing. The show isn’t only about him, and while a big part of the main plot of the season revolves around this particular character, there are plenty of other important things going on in Westeros and Essos that we need to be aware of.

With just two episodes left in season six, episode 8 brought us even closer to the inevitable conflict between bastards. But you should stop reading now, to avoid major spoilers, if you haven’t seen episode 8 yet. More →
