The fourth season of the much-loved and talked about HBO television show Game of Thrones premiered on the 6th of April. For the first time ever, Indian viewers were able to catch the premiere on their own television sets – in high def, no less – on the 13th, within days of the American premiere, something unheard of in India up until now.
So far, Indian fans of this gripping show had no regular access to it, but that has changed now – thanks to HBO Defined. The amazing medieval fantasy drama now officially airs in India on this channel shortly after the American air date, every Sunday at 9pm.
The highly anticipated new season kicked off with the appearance of a new character Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne, checked off a name on Arya Stark’s hit list and gave her back her beloved sword Needle, and gave Jaime Lannister a cold family welcome back to King’s Landing after his long imprisonment. Though still just as meticulously detailed as before, the show continues to move its story at an impressive pace, which starving fans (who had been crossing off dates on their calendars since June 2013) are more than happy to devour.
So, if you’re eager as I am (and I know I’m absolutely brimming with eagerness) to know what happens next in the fast-declining Stark family’s fight for survival, the fate of the cunning Lannisters, the onward march of the determined Khaleesi, and the continuing battle for the Iron Throne, what are you waiting for? Go subscribe to HBO Defined to catch the best show on the block in high definition with zero ads! Subscription is available to users of all major DTH providers in India.
Come the weekend, make sure you’re fully stocked with popcorn to chew on during the edge-of-the-seat excitement of Game of Thrones!
What excited me most about the first episode of the new season is that Arya has finally got Needle back – there is a small sense of triumph at the victory of this beloved character, don’t you think?
