Maybe you’re a technophobe. Maybe you just didn’t know the episodes are available on HBO On Demand and HBO GO. Or maybe you just didn’t want to be bothered with all the Wi-Fi and the button pushing and whatnot.
Whatever your reason for not having seen “Game of Thrones,” HBO is making it easier than ever to get caught up in time for the fourth season, which kicks off at 9 p.m. Sunday.
Starting at 9 a.m. Friday, the pay channel is going old-school with a marathon of all 30 episodes on HBO2. Then, 30 hours later, it starts all over again.
So set your DVR. Or, if you really are a technophobe, your VCR. Or just lay back on your couch for 30 hours and let it wash all over you.
For the more technologically inclined, though, HBO has set up an online viewer’s guide, complete with interactive maps of Westeros and Essos, character bios, interviews, videos and context from author George R.R. Martin that offer a closer look at the individual episodes. See it at viewers-guide.hbo.com.
