HBO Now Streaming Service to Launch Exclusively Through Apple, iTunes Releases New Season 5 Game of Thrones Trailer
— iTunes TV (@iTunesTV) March 9, 2015
Depending where you fall on the Venn diagram of Game of Thrones and Apple fans, it may be time to get hype: At an Apple event earlier today, the company announced it will be partnering exclusively with HBO Now when the $15 streaming service launches at the beginning of April, allowing members with any Apple product to watch Game of Thrones by the series’ April 12th premiere date. (Technical difficulties aside, of course.)
Although I’m not sure how I feel yet about House HBO and House Apple uniting, at least the two companies clearly understand their target demographics: a new Season 5 Game of Thrones trailer premiered at the event (and has since been shared on Twitter by iTunes) and it is chock-a-block with dragons.
How do y’all feel about these HBO Now updates and the new trailer? Got an Apple device you’ll be watching the season premiere on? (If not, join my sad little club. We’ll make our own dragons, guys.)
