I was hoping for another preview with Boardwalk Empire ~ never imagined we'd get one sooner!

I hope it's not just the teaser we've already seen.

Yeah, it looks like it could just be a montage of multiple show previews.

My understanding is that it's a new teaser, or possibly even a longer trailer. They'll also be sending us a new publicity still, which will certainly not be a rehash.

It is, alas, not coming to the BBC any time soon. Sky has locked up exclusive rights to air HBO's programming in the U.K. for the next several years.

Erm, what the fuck? I thought this was another BBC-HBO thing ala Rome?

Fuck you Sky and fuck you Rupert Murdoch you old right wing piece of shit.

The BBC apparently pulled out of this project quite some time ago, but nothing was announced and word only came out about that after the Sky deal was announced.

It appears that this was initially on the cards but Sky made HBO a better offer. The cut in the BBC's budget also possibly played a role.

And yeah, it is bad news. If this had been on the BBC GoT would have been one of the big, heavily-talked about shows of next year. On Sky it'll be yet another American import 90% of the potential audience can't watch :(

Sorry, Poobah. I have Sky myself, but I'm not psyched about this. The ads are going to kill any kind of momentum the show gains. Can you imagine an ad following the Red Wedding? Dear god! Televisions will be broken.

It's better that it's on Sky than not shown in the UK at all.
