Are you a big fan of Game Of Thrones? We aren’t, but clearly we’re in the minority. So many people tried to watch the show on HBO Go this past weekend that it crashed the delivery system. Their loss is all of our gain. Until April 4th Xbox One and Xbox 360 users can watch the show’s première episode absolutely free of charge.

Microsoft and HBO announced a new Game of Thrones featured area today. There users can watch this week’s episode plus an absolute bucket load of bonus content. Normally, users would have to subscribe to HBO Go to watch an episode of the famed series and that requires a cable subscription with an HBO package.

Now if only the two companies would work together to deliver the Xbox One version of the HBO Go app they promised last fall.
