It’s not a surprise that the Game of Thrones has become a huge hit. It’s a series that has captured the interest of many, and is one of HBO’s biggest hits ever.

By giving Xbox One and Xbox 360 users the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere for free, Microsoft is giving Game of Thrones viewers a huge gift. This free gift is showcasing the power of Xbox Video, and will hopefully give users a way to try Xbox Video for more videos in the future.
US Viewers Gain Season Premiere
One thing that Microsoft and Xbox had to do, is limit the premiere of the Game of Thrones season 5 to US viewers only. It is available for free until April 16th, and should give diehard Game of Thrones fans plenty of time to enjoy it. It not only brings the premiere of the episode to fans but also is a multimedia experience.
With the enhanced premiere, fans can enjoy a remarkable experience when they sign into Xbox Live. They can get trailers, pledge allegiances to a house, go behind the scenes , and test Westeros knowledge with trivia questions. It is certainly more than just a premiere, but a full Game of Thrones experience.
Building On Xbox Video With GOT
With this type of major type of premiere of Game of Thrones on Xbox Video, Microsoft is teaming up with HBO to give viewers a great way to enjoy the show. It gives them more than just the video, but a full multimedia experience with the show. It also gives them a way to truly enjoy the show like never before.
Obviously, the goal of this type of move is to get users to buy more videos on Xbox Video, and get them to subscribe to HBO as well. It’s a cross promotional move with HBO, and one that certainly could work. Game of Thrones is a huge hit, and Xbox One and Xbox 360 certainly has the millions of users who love it as well.
Catch the Game of Thrones on Xbox for a short period. Enjoy it and then subscribe to HBO for more.
