Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere : Winter is coming . . .

The season 5 premiere of addictive television series, Game of Thrones is finally only a few days away. South African audiences will be glad to know that Mnet has co-ordinated the South African launch along with the US launch. Which means no spoilers before the show hits screens in South Africa.

Speaking to 702's own avid Game of Thrones fan, Azania Mosaka, Mnet Publicity Manager of International Series, Portia Hlongwane said that Mnet has been working closely with American television network HBO to coordinate the simulcast release of the much anticipated premiere in both countries.

Kudos goes to our acquisitions team who have made sure that over the past few months we've been getting a lot of other series [coming out] with the US as well.

Hlongwane also gave tickets to a really excited 702 caller who is an avid fan of the series.

Mnet will be hosting the premiere at Hyde Park in Johannesburg, the Pavillion in Durban and Canal Walk in Cape Town.

Viewers will also be able to catch the premiere on Mnet Edge (DSTv Channel 102) at 3am as it goes live in the US as well.
