Sky Atlantic has struck a deal with HBO to simulcast all future episodes.
From next week, the hit fantasy drama will air at 2am on the channel, meaning UK viewers will be able to watch the show at the same time as 170 other countries around the world.

Sky Atlantic’s official Twitter account confirmed the news.

Prior to the new season, a petition had been set up on asking Sky Atlantic to reconsider their original plans to exclude the UK from a global simulcast. The petition has now been updated to announce the “victory”.
