  • GAME THRONES Season 2 DVD Breaks Records  GOTS2_dvd

 The Season 2 DVD has been out a week and already it has proven a slayer in the home video market. Tallies show that on the first day of sale alone 241,000 units were sold. That, according to HBO, topped Season One’s DVD launch by 44% making The Season 2 set the highest selling home video release for HBO. Needless to say, HBO hopes that this momentum will keep GAME OF THRONES going strong for Season 3 and beyond. In part, it is due to loyal fans like the ones that frequent HBOWatch.


  • Texas A&M gets exclusive premiere of Season 3, Episode 1  

How lucky are they? On March 22, nine days before its HBO debut, a screening of the Season 3 premiere of GAME OF THRONES will be seen at Rudder texas_A&MAuditorium at the university. Also present will be concept creator George R. R. Martin. “A Special Evening with Famed Writer George R.R. Martin” begins at 6:30 p.m. He will give a lecture and brief Q&A followed by a screening of the episode beginning at 7:45pm.

And if you do go, how about coming back to HBOWatch and sharing the experience with us?
