During this morning’s Apple event that saw the official announcement of the Apple Watch, we also saw HBO unveil their cable-free on-demand streaming service HBO Now, which will be exclusive to Apple devices when it launches next month. Debuting on April 12th and priced at $14.99 per month, subscribers will be able to watch all their favorite HBO shows both old and new, including the fifth season of ‘Game of Thrones‘ that premieres that day as well. To celebrate the new partnership between Apple and HBO, they’ve released a brand new trailer for the popular fantasy drama based on the novels by George R.R. Martin.
Recently, we’ve seen a wave of promotional material for the upcoming season of ‘Game of Thrones.’ In addition to a few clips featuring some fan-favorite characters, a new poster saw Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister staring down one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons. Now, the Khaleesi is heavily featured in the latest trailer as she gears up for war on Westeros. But of course, that’s not the only problems that the Lannisters, Starks, Tyrells, and Baratheons have in their immediate futures.
In addition to getting a taste of the action from season five that sees Daenerys “breaking the wheel”, we also get to see Jonathan Pryce’s character known as the High Sparrow. This religious extremist is said to cause quite the commotion in Westeros, especially for Cersei Lannister. Look out for Pryce to be a major player in this series, but get a glimpse of him right here first. Check out the trailer below courtesy of the iTunes TV Twitter account:
