Wondering when you’ll be able to watch the Season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones Sunday night if you can’t flip to HBO on one of those old-fashioned television sets?
Not to worry–the cable network is promising to make the episode available to Internet users at 9 p.m. Eastern, the exact same time it debuts on TV.
Users of HBO Go and HBO Now, the network’s new standalone streaming service that doesn’t require a cable subscription, should be able to watch all of the channel’s original programming at the same time it appears on the traditional HBO channel.
“New episodes of original programming and theatrical films will become available on HBO NOW at the same time that they premiere on HBO,” the network says on its support website. Certain live programming, like sporting events, could be delayed a few hours, though.
Whether the new streaming service will live up to this promise remains to be seen. During last year’s Game of Thrones premiere, HBO Go suffered outages, causing many Internet users to complain when their streams were out of sync and spoilers flew around social media.
