GAME OF CATCH-UP. Entire Game of Thrones box sets coming to MultiChoice's DStv Explora from 14 March before the 4th season starts on M-Net.

You're reading it here first. 

Not Winter as a season, but ALL the seasons are coming.

Get ready for a plan (not of the Lannisters' making), but as epic in scope. And yes, baby dragons are included. ALL of the episodes of the fantasy series Game of Thrones are coming to MultiChoice's DStv Explora for instant viewing from 14 March, before the brand-new 4th season kicks off on 18 April on M-Net (DStv 101).

MultiChoice that apparently loves dragons as much as Denys Targaryen, is doing some magic of its own: loading the entire box sets episodes of the previous three seasons of Game of Thrones on the DStv Explora decoder.

The 4th season of Game of Thrones will start on 18 April on M-Net - a new 10 episodes just like each of the previous three seasons. The new season's episodes will roll out shortly on the heels of America where the season starts on 6 April.

Later this week however Game of Thrones will be made available in glorious high definition (HD) from 14 March (season 1), 21 March (season 2) and 28 March (season 3) before the 4th season starts on 18 April on M-Net.

It will enable people who've never watched the show, those who've missed episodes, those who want to watch it again and refresh their background knowledge of the show, to watch whatever of the 30 episodes of Game of Thrones they want.

The Here-Be-Dragons on television stacking of an entire three seasons of Game of Thrones will be followed by more such similar all-you-can-view box sets on the DStv Explora in future.

"We are already looking into more partnerships that will allow us to super stack series and make box sets available through DStv Catch Up as just one of the many benefits of owning a DStv Explora," says Simon Camerer, DStv's chief marketing officer.
