Winter is Coming: HBO to Preview 15 Minutes of Game of Thrones.

On April 3 HBO will play a 15 minute preview of the series. It will air at 9PM on that Sunday and will be followed by Mildred Pierce Part 3. After it plays on HBO, it will be availible on, HBO Go, and the next day on HBO On Demand.

This is easily one of the most anticipated shows of the season. I'm reading the George RR Martin book right now and it's fantastic. It has the perfect makings for a TV series. Expect a lot more coverage of the show as we get closer to its premiere on April 17 at 9PM on HBO.
