The first episode of the Game of Thrones TV series debuted on HBO almost a decade ago – yes, it’s been so long – and the company is planning a major event to celebrate its landmark anniversary. ‘The Iron Anniversary’ will involve a month of events, easy access to behind the scenes content, episodes with personalized curation and more.
Game of Thrones, believe it or not, debuted on April 17, 2011. The series quickly gained speed and became one of the best programs on the premium network – until last season, that is, that generated petitions from fans who wanted to remake. Apart from that, it has been almost a decade since the program entered popular culture.
To celebrate this milestone, HBO announced The Iron Anniversary, a month-long event that will include goodies for HBO Max subscribers, including episode recommendations for each user (although you may want to avoid them if you haven’t watched the series yet). The program will also have its own Spotlight page with access to interviews with the cast, behind the scenes videos, extra content and more.
According to HBO, the Spotlight page is adapted for a variety of viewers, including those who are new to the series and hardcore fans who have already watched the program. Starting on April 10, the network will begin MaraThrone, a Game of Thrones marathon that will involve showing all episodes of the first season starting at 10:00 am Eastern time.
You will be able to watch the MaraThrone broadcast on HBO2, while the rest of the episodes can be accessed on the HBO Max streaming service. In addition, Warner Bros. has called on some companies to launch Iron Anniversary products, including a Fabergé Imperial Egg, a variety of craft beers inspired by the program, a limited edition of Funko collections and a ‘Full Edition’ of the series to be launched.
