Re: Game of Thrones (book/show) newbie (please no spoilers!)
I am really pissed off.
Foxtel (Australia's cable TV service) has worked a deal with HBO to stop iTunes users being able to pay for and download each episodes the day after it airs in Australia. From season 4, if Australians want to legally look at GoT close to the day it airs, we have to have an Foxtel subscription which is $47 for the basic package and another $25 for the movie channels so we can get HBO.
I am not doing that not even for 10 episodes of GoT. I will have to wait for it on DVD.
RIP, Miss Chicken, little three-legged cat extraordinaire (4 Dec 1998-24 Aug 2013). We will love you forever.
