Bad News, Game Of Thrones Fans: Foxtel Has Extended Its Deal With HBO

If you’re one of the people who complains about the fact that the only legal way to watch Game Of Thrones at the time of original broadcast in Australia is to pay for a Foxtel subscription, time to get your whine on again. Foxtel has extended its partnership with HBO, which produces Game Of Thrones, so it doesn’t look like there will be any change to that arrangement in the foreseeable future.

Many Aussie fans were annoyed last year when individual episodes of Game Of Thrones stopped being offered on iTunes in their week of broadcast — an unusual arrangement which no-one else in the world had ever enjoyed. While Foxtel has fast-tracked the broadcasting of each episode, some fans would still prefer to pay for individual episodes rather than a broader pay TV subscription. Dream on, people — it ain’t gonna happen.
