HBO - Apple TV Deal Could Hurt Foxtel’s Game of Thrones Ratings

Presto Streaming TV and Movies

Having the Australian rights to the HBO hit Game of Thrones has always been the feather in Foxtel’s cap. However, if a new deal between HBO and Apple TV comes to fruition, Foxtel might be in for a rude awakening, as they will no longer be Australians’ only source for the uber-popular HBO show. Plus: see the new gripping trailer for season five!

The deal between Apple TV and HBO would allow people with a subscription to HBO Go to see Game of Thrones, in addition to HBO’s other series, through their Apple TV. The stand-alone subscription will cost a reported $15 a month. This would be the first time Game of Thrones would be available to consumers without a paid subscription to a cable or satellite provider.

The fifth season of Game of Thrones premieres in the US on April 12th and will be broadcast on Foxtel on April 13th. While HBO Go will technically only be available to those in the US, thousands of Australians are already well versed in VPN go-arounds from accessing the US version of Netflix.

Moreover, HBO dropped a fresh new trailer for its hit series on Monday, making the anticipation even more agonizing for fans everywhere. Highlights: Tyrion spots his first dragon, Daenerys shares her ambitions, and Stannis plots his assault on the north.
