game of thrones season 6 1

The penultimate episode of 'Game of Thrones' series six airs this Monday morning on Sky Atlantic, but hard luck if you were planning on catching up before then – Sky's Now TV service has just dropped series one to four.

The streaming service binned off the earlier series earlier this week, with only episode four of the current series now available to viewers with an Entertainment Pass (which costs £6.99 a month).

The firm did give plenty of warning, however. Back in March, when it made available the earlier series in the build-up to series six starting, it made clear they would only be offered until June 13th of this year. It even had a countdown to the day when the series would be yanked.

Despite this, it still took some fans by surprise. They took to Twitter to air their grievances.

If you're yet to see episode four of series six, you'd better get your skates on. Each episode only stays available for 30 days after broadcast.

However, there's always the chance that earlier series will return to the service.

The penultimate episode of series six will be the longest yet, at 60 minutes. But this will be trumped by episode 10, which will run a whopping 69 minutes – that's 14 minutes longer than usual.
