Has there been any hint/announcements towards when Season 1 will be released on DVD/BD?
I'd expect the DVDs of the 1st season of GOT to be released sometime in March next year.
HBO usually releases the DVDs near to the next season. For example, 3rd season DVD of True Blood was released on May 31st this year, about 3 weeks before the start of season 4.
