Cape Town – Not Winter as a season, but all the seasons are coming: MultiChoice plans to put the episodes from all three seasons of the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones on its DStv Explora for viewers to watch anytime from 14 March before the start of the 4th season on M-Net in April.
The 4th season of the highly popular fantasy will start on M-Net (DStv 101) on 18 April with episodes rolling out in South Africa shortly after the American starting date of 6 April. Like the previous three seasons, there’s also 10 episodes in the 4th season.
Before the start of the new season MultiChoice plans to make all the episodes of the previous three seasons of Game of Thrones available on the DStv Explora to DStv subscribers.
Game of Thrones will be made available in high definition (HD) from 14 March (season 1), 21 March (season 2) and 28 March (season 3).
It will enable people who've never watched the show, those who've missed episodes and those who want to watch it again to refresh their background knowledge of the show, to watch whatever of the existing 30 episodes of Game of Thrones they want.
The television stacking of an entire three seasons of Game of Thrones will be followed by more such similar all-you-can-view box sets on the DStv Explora in future.
"We are already looking into more partnerships that will allow us to super stack series and make box sets available through DStv Catch Up as just one of the many benefits of owning a DStv Explora," says Simon Camerer, DStv's chief marketing officer.
