When does Game of Thrones season 7 come out in Australia?

Game of Thrones season 7 has slated to start in Australia in 2017, but when is the first episode? WHEN?!

UPDATE 10/3/2017: WE HAVE A RELEASE DATE! Game of Thrones revealed the date via a bizarre live stream involving a giant block of ice and flame throwers.

It’s slated for July 16 in Australia at approximately 11am so put that in your diary now!

The saga of the season 7 release date

The next instalment of the show is shrouded in mystery – and unfortunately, so is the start date.

And for once it’s not just because we’ve been screwed over with later release dates, it’s kind of actually because of global warming.

See, it was supposed to be out before the middle of the year but HBO has had to push it back because the weather on set has been stuffing them around.

Basically, the weather’s been too damn good around Europe so the filmmakers had to delay production because they needed some legit snowy, wintery climates to shoot in.

All we know at the moment is that it will be broadcast during the Northern Hemisphere’s summer (aka our winter) – so this means you can expect it to drop between June and August.

Most industry insiders are hopeful they’re going to get it up sooner rather than later though, so at the moment it’s probably looking like June and July.

How to watch Game of Thrones Season 7?

Alright keen bean, we’re a long way out from the season opener so we’re not too sure about all the exact details for this.

All we know at the moment is that Foxtel has the rights to the show, so if you want to watch it **legally**, getting a subscription is the only way you’re going to be able to do it.

Fingers crossed they have some sort of promotion or special package but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Have there been any trailers, yet?

At the time of writing, the only info we have is this two-second snippet from an HBO 2017 trailer – skip to about one-minute in and you’ll see it.

Everyone was losing their minds about it when it came out, but that’s all we have at the moment. We’ll update with any more info when it comes through.

Until then, if you really need to get your Game of Thrones fix, go back and catch-up on previous seasons while getting Tyrion-level drunk with the official Game of Thrones wine.
