If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, the wait is almost over. Season Six begins on April 25, and will be broadcast on Channel 16 at 4 a.m., exactly when it is being shown in the US. It will be available on YES VOD starting at 5 a.m.
YES has already stoked the GOT frenzy by devoting an entire channel (Channel 16) exclusively to the show for three weeks. It isn’t only in Israel that people have gone crazy for the ultra-violent fantasy show, though. In America, the show’s producers announced that President Barack Obama would get advance screeners of the new season, and a reporter filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get her hands on them, saying the public had a right to know. Needless to say, the White House did not release them.
