FiOS Customers Celebrate Game Of Thrones Season 5 Early

By: Phil Burrows

Spring might be in the air, but winter is coming. Game of Thrones is returning tonight with a thrilling season 5 premiere on HBO that left fans ravenous to see what’s next for the great Houses of Westeros. Last season’s shocking (and satisfying) finale left diehard Game of Thrones fans excited to see where the pieces of the puzzle will fall. Will Tyrion escape Queen Cersei’s wrath? Will the Stark children ever reunite? Can Daenerys Targaryen maintain control of Meereen, and what about her dragons? Word around the Seven Kingdoms is that season 5 will ramp up the shocking betrayals, ferocious battles and wanton revelry that helped make Game of Thrones HBO’s most popular show ever.

Last week, a few hundred lucky FiOS customers and super fans across the country got the exclusive chance to catch season 5 days ahead of Sunday’s national premiere. Verizon FiOS and HBO teamed up to host these Sneak Previews in Virginia, Texas, New York City, and Tampa for customers, making them the first to get in on the action ahead of tonight’s premiere.
