This fall, Game of Thrones is once again doing what it does so well- breaking the rules. Only this time, it’s their own. Usually we look forward to the home release of Game of Thrones every spring, with Blu-rays and DVDs of the previous season landing just before the new season premieres on HBO. It’s become a tradition, an expectation, so naturally they had to mess with that and shock us all: Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season on Blu-ray and DVD will be in stores November 15th, packed with all the bonus features and audio commentaries we’ve come to love. We’ll finally have the latest season on DVD/Blu-ray before the holidays and it’s about time!
Season 6 is already available for download on Digital HD with its own set of bonus features, on iTunes and other online outlets.
Today, thanks to HBO, we’re opening up a giveaway of Game of Thrones The Complete Sixth Season on Blu-ray. Four winners will be taking home the most recent season of HBO’s biggest show ever, just in time for the holidays!
What do you have to do to enter to win? Tell us about your favorite moment of Game of Thrones Season 6! Post it in comments here and you’ll be entered in the giveaway. We’re accepting entries for the next seven days, and we’ll draw 4 winners next Tuesday afternoon.
