Today, Apple hosted an event primarily to introduce the new Apple Watch, but it proved be quite a fête for Game of Thrones fans.
For one, Apple CEO Tim Cook and HBO chairman/CEO Richard Pleper announced that the two companies would be partnering up, with Apple TV serving as the exclusive streaming hub for HBO Now content. HBO Now is a new service that will offer access to its entire library of original shows and large selection of films for $14.99. Naturally, it's a dream come true for GoT fans without cable.
As if that's not exciting enough, during the event they debuted a *new* trailer for the upcoming season, which finally gives us a good look on what's going on with Tyrion Lannister. Spoiler: He's grown a beard and it's giving us all the feels.
Game of Thrones Season 5 will premiere on HBO on April 12th. Remember: Thanks to this new announcement, if you have an Apple TV you'll be able to watch it, ahem, legally without cable so long as you (or the host of your GoT viewing party) subscribe to HBO Now for $15. Who wants to go halfsies?
