The fifth series of 'Game of Thrones' will start on April 13th at 9pm on Sky Atlantic for UK viewers, a day after it airs in the US on HBO.

Like series four, series five will consist of 10 episodes. Each will be shown the day after their US broadcast.

Last year, Sky simulcast the series four premiere. However, it still proved so popular when aired a day later that it caused Now TV to go down. Let's hope the same problem isn't repeated this time.

All four previous series will be available on Sky's Now TV service from March 1st.

At the end of the month, two episodes from series four will be broadcast in IMAX cinemas.

You can catch episodes nine and 10 – The Watchers on the Wall and The Children, respectively – on the big screen between January 23rd and 29th.

Based on George RR Martin's novels, 'Game of Thrones' was the most pirated show of 2014. It has also won 10 Emmys.

Series five will feature Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, among others.

HBO will launch a streaming service this year which many expect to coincide with the new series of 'Game of Thrones'.

So far, the broadcaster hasn't revealed an exact date.
