Following last Sunday night’s talked-about plot twist in the penultimate episode of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, the epic first season comes to a conclusion on HBO Canada, a multiplex channel of Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) on Sunday, June 19 at 9 p.m. In the finale episode, “Fire and Blood,” the stakes are high for the Stark House as aspirations and ambitions, secrets and feuds come to a head in the quest to control the Iron Throne.
Seeing audience growth week over week, Game of Thrones has connected with subscribers, becoming one of the top three performing series on HBO Canada since the channel’s launch. Based on its success in the US, Game of Thrones has been renewed for a second season by HBO.
The season finale premieres Sunday, June 19 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada and the entire season will be available:
- On The Movie Network OnDemand, Movie Central On Demand, and HBO Canada On Demand
- In Western Canada via Movie Central Online with participating television providers
- In Eastern Canada via Bell TV Online, Rogers On Demand Online and Videotron’s Illico Web
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones is a 10-part epic fantasy series that follows kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen as they vie for power and control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
I already know where the story goes, because I’ve read the books (still waiting on the next one, Mr. Martin…) so the burning question I have is – WHEN IS SEASON 2?
