DStv has added popular American television series Game of Thrones to Nigerians.
The award-winning series will be aired on M-Net Edge starting from tomorrow, Monday the 18th of May at 10 p.m.
For those who also love PVR-ing on their PVR decoders as well as those who would love to watch on the go, the Regional Director, M-Net West Africa, Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu said; “DStv Premium subscribers can also set their PVRs or Exploras to record the season and watch it at their leisure or watch previously aired episodes on Catch-Up, which will also be available for 48-hours after broadcast. The series will also be available on the DStv Now app for viewers to enjoy on-the-go.“
Just in case you are wondering what took Dstv this long to bring the series to Nigeria, Wangi had this to say, “Game of Thrones is a series that displays nudity, sex, violence and strong language. We were required to meet specific regulatory and censorship criteria before introducing it in Nigeria. It is as a result of this that we have positioned the series to air between 10:00pm to 12 midnight for its duration. We also strongly encourage parents to activate the parental control feature on their decoders.“
Each season will air according to the following schedule:
- Season 1: 18 – 22 May 2015
- Season 2: 25 – 29 May 2015
- Season 3: 1 – 5 June 2015
- Season 4: 8 – 12 June 2015
- Season 5: 15 – 19 June 2015
