BT adds Game of Thrones downloads

gameofthrones15_15UK telco BT has added Game of Thrones to its download-to-own line-up and claims the hit HBO series will be available to buy digitally on BT TV before it launches on other sell-through platforms.

The BT deal with HBO Home Entertainment gives the telco several of the premium cablers dramas for its download store.

Other titles include all seasons of Entourage and True Detective.

Game of Thrones seasons one to four are available. BT said new HBO titles will be added through the year.

The HBO fare can be viewed on BT TV’s set top boxes and smartphones, tablets or PCs.

Meanwhile our TV Everywhere service allows families to enjoy some of their favourite channels around the home and on the move.”
