As Game of Thrones (GOT) Season 8 makes its way to the small screen, English Entertainment channel Star World is playing host to the show in India, which airs on the channel at 10 pm every Tuesday.
As the show inches closer to the finale, the anticipation only seems to be growing, as the biggest questions that have stayed with fans over years and seasons are now finally going to be answered. Is Jon Snow the true heir to the throne? Who will win the Great War – Westeros or the Wight Walkers? Who will finally sit on the Iron Throne?
From on-ground activations, social media activities and exclusive collaborations, Star World has covered all ground to build up to the grand series’ finale of Game of Thrones. Starting with their on-ground property ‘GOT Quiz Nights’, Star World hosted 18 fun evenings across six cities where viewers got their knowledge of GOT tested. All the while fans battled out for the coveted title of #TheGreatestFan of the series and the grand prize of Nexa S-Cross across Star World’s social media platforms.
In collaboration with Indian fashion designer Masaba, Star World will unveil the official #CreateForTheThrone Masaba X Game of Thrones line that consists of jewellery, apparel, tech accessories and more. The unveiling will give fans an opportunity to create their own tributes for GOT and submit their entries to @StarWorldIndia Instagram handle.
The channel has also organised GOT-theme dinners, across key cities – Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. The exclusive dinners provide all invitees with an opportunity to experience the series in all its glory – the interiors, the set-up, the throne, a specially curated menu inspired by iconic scenes from the show and more.
To keep fans engaged and build anticipation for each episode, Star World is also running a ‘#GOTProphesies’ contest across their social media handles. Here, viewers will be required to predict who gets sacrificed #ForTheThrone in every episode and the catch is, will we ever be able to predict? Ten points for answering this too!
Packed with action, suspense, thrill and the mammoth star cast, this war-fantasy drama series will continue making history with every episode of the series’ finale. And, with an enormous budget of $15 million per episode, Season 8 of Game of Thrones is certainly going to be a television spectacle.
