The first two series of acclaimed fantasy saga Game of Thrones will be available on Sky’s on-demand service soon, the broadcaster has confirmed.

Both initial runs of the epic series will go live on Sky on April 1st – a date fully paid-up fans will probably know also sees the massively anticipated third series start on Sky Atlantic at 9pm.

Based on the hugely popular series of books by George RR Martin, the series takes the bulk of its narrative from the book A Storm of Swords and feature the people of the Seven Kingdoms facing up to a threat that threatens to imperil them all.

Sky’s announcement comes as it looks to new ways to attract customers, with Game of Thrones seemingly at the forefront of the strategy.

Earlier this year, Sky made two episodes of the show available to Freeview customers as part of its Sky Thursdays promotion.

Tonight’s line-up, showing on Freeview Channel 11, includes Prohibition era drama Boardwalk Empire, cop show Blue Bloods, a “sumptuous new documentary series” The British and more inspired idiocy from Karl Pilkington.
