In conjunction with HBO, Microsoft is offering Xbox owners free access to the Season 4 premiere of the network’s hottest medieval drama Game of Thrones.
Are you bummed out that you missed the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones? Have you been avoiding your co-workers and friends as if they had the plague so they didn’t spoil what happened during the episode? Well if you own an Xbox One or Xbox 360, you can fire up your console and download the newest episode free of charge.
From now until April 14, Microsoft is allowing Xbox owners to connect to Xbox LIVE and snag Sunday’s premiere episode of HBO’s dragonfire-hot fantasy drama for free–and the best part is you don’t need to be a HBO GO or Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber to get it.
In celebration of Season 4, Microsoft has also created a featured hub for specific Game of Thrones content, highlighting various other clips including featurettes, trailers, behind-the-scenes footage as well as interviews with the cast and crew.

Whether you’re rooting for the dastardly Lannisters in Kings Landing or captivating by the commanding presence of Daenarys Targaryen and her trio of infernal dragons, you’ll find something to your fancy in the extra content.
While gamers don’t need to be a HBO subscriber to get the episode, this is a great way for HBO to get new sign-ups as the show continues onward throughout its fourth season. Be sure to grab the episode throughout the week, and it’s likely that owners will be able to view the content once it’s no longer available even if they’re not Gold subscribers.
