‘Game of Thrones’’ Season 4 Debuts on April 6

Season 4 of HBO’s popular fantasy series, ‘Game of Thrones’ is set to debut on April 6th. The coming season promises to include more excitement, death, and action-packed scenes than the previous three seasons which sucked in most fantasy fans into watching the epic show. This promise should prove exciting to watch since many who had read George R.R. Martin’s books did not expect the number of deaths of major characters that occurred during the violent, Red Wedding episode that finished out season 3! Perhaps one of the most addicting characteristics of the show is the fact that there is no guarantee on any given episode whether the “villains” or the “heroes” prevail on any given day!

Season 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ is “loosely” based on the second half of Martin’s ‘A Storm of Swords” novel. This is the third in the book series that HBO bases the TV series upon. The producers of ‘Game of Thrones’ do take the liberty to move the novel’s story lines around (and even change them) to make the best TV series as possible. Although the series has garnered a broad, international base since its first release, it does commonly receive criticism for the use of nudity and violence.

What are Fans in Store for During Season 4?

There will be a fair amount of suspense added to the plot line of season 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ for fans. The show will kick off with the wedding of the spoiled brat that fans love to hate, Joffrey, and his betrothed, Margaery. Dany will also be heavily featured during this season with her new army of feed slaves and the three, ever-growing dragons. Jaime Lannister is also reunited with his sister along with a large number of new characters that are features during this season.

How Can You Watch ‘Game of Thrones’ ?

The easiest way to watch ‘Game of Thrones’ is to subscribe to HBO. Once you have subscribed, the series can either be watched via traditional cable or satellite television providers or by using the popular HBO Go streaming service. HBO Go can be watched either directly on a computer, or on a TV via a set-top box that supports the service. For those who really want to go on the cheap, you can always try out a new service provider for cable or satellite TV that is providing “free HBO” for the initial three months of the contract in order to watch the series. Just make sure that you read the fine print and don’t sign up for a service that will end up costing you money in the long run to just watch the series if that is not what you want to do!

Is ‘Game of Thrones’ Available on Netflix?

Unfortunately for Netflix fans, ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 is not available on Netflix. Although HBO is attempting to make the international release of episodes available more quickly in the past (in order to combat piracy), it is expected that the HBO Go service will be the primary platform for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans to enjoy the series going forward. Past seasons that have been released to DVD can be purchased through other outlets such as the iTunes store for fans who insist on having digital copies of the ‘Game of Thrones’ series.
