The fifth season of Game of Thrones started last night, but if you don’t have HBO or HBO GO, then you were probably stuck watching a documentary or something. But Microsoft has announced Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners with an active Xbox Live membership will be able to watch the premiere episode for free until April 16.
Xbox owners will also be able to view a number of Game of Thrones content this week, which includes trailers, behind-the-scenes on-set tours, trivia questions asked by cast members, and finally pledging your allegiance to a house.
Microsoft’s offerings are only good for the first episode of the fifth season, so if you’re planning on watching future episodes, you’ll need to subscribe to HBO.

The first one is always free.
UK guys at home: Is that also available in Blighty? I remember it being on Xbox Live last year.
