HBO is going to give you lots of opportunities to see the premiere of “Game of Thrones” — even more than it usually does.
The heavily anticipated (and hyped) series premieres at 9 p.m. ET Sunday (April 17). If you miss the debut, you’ll be able to see it twice more later that night, at 10:05 and 11:15 p.m.
The following night at 9, HBO will simulcast the premiere on six of its multiplex channels: HBO, HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Comedy, HBO Zone and HBO Latino. HBO2 will also offer a pair of replays at 10:05 and 11:15 p.m. Monday.
That doesn’t even include seven replays on HBO, HBO2 and HBO Signature that will air over the course of next week as part of the show’s regular scheduling pattern. The “Game of Thrones” premiere will also be available on demand starting Monday.
The cable channel says the all-“GoT,” all-the-time scheduling is “designed to guarantee maximum exposure” for the premiere. Short of hacking into other networks and taking over their signals, we think that will probably do it.
