Looks like we’re in line for a March release for the Game of Thrones season one DVD and Blu-Ray. At least according to this British Video Association listing. This official-looking site claims to be the online home for “the trade body that represents the interests of publishers and rights owners of video home entertainment.” They have Thrones set for a March 19th release date. And it looks like French fans will have a slightly shorter wait as this Warner Bros. France promo video advertises the release date as March 7th.
Doing a bit more digging on that Mar 19th date, I’m guessing Mar 20th is more likely, as these things generally come out on Tuesdays. In addition, the Boardwalk Empire listing on the same site says Jan 9th is the release date, when it actually won’t release until Jan 10th.
Speaking of Jan 10th, it looks like HBO plans to release a promo disc for Game of Thrones on that date. This will likely include the first episode only and usually gets given away by retailers for free with the purchase of any other HBO series.
Winter Is Coming: So March it is then. A bit of a wait, but at least watching all the special features will help pass that last month until season two!
