game of thrones series four

Sky's NOWTV service suffered an outage on Monday night when it struggled to cope with the huge number of fans watching the series four premier of 'Game of Thrones'. To make up for it, Sky is offering a free Entertainment Pass for a month.

The Entertainment Pass usually costs £4.99 a month, so anyone wanting to take advantage of the offer will be able to see the next four episodes of 'Game of Thrones' for free.

The offer is valid until September 8th.

As well as watching the new series of 'Game of Thrones', you'll be able to watch all the other Sky shows, including 'Moone Boy', 'True Detective' (which stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey), and 'Klondike'.

Sky also has the first three series of 'Game of Thrones' on catch up through Now TV.

Sky simulcast the first episode of series four on Monday morning at 2am. It repeated the episode in its regular Monday night 9pm time slot. Both broadcasts were on Sky Atlantic HD.

More than 538,000 fans tuned in to the early-morning broadcast, while another 664,000 watched it in its 9pm time slot. Over 100,000 fans watched both screenings.

HBO released a preview trailer for episode two recently, and it looks like something big is about to go down at the much-anticipated 'Purple Wedding' between King Joffrey and Lady Margaery Tyrell.

Huge plot twists are expected every couple of episodes this series, according to one star of the show. We've also been promised this season will tie up a lot of loose ends.
