We’re working with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, GetGlue, Tumblr, Google+ and Miso as well as building out immersive experiences on HBO digital properties such as HBOConnect, HBO.com and HBO GO.HBO Connect is an integral part of our social TV strategy for Game of Thrones this year. Leading up to the premiere, we encouraged fans to describe Game of Thrones in 140characters or less and visualized it on HBO Connect and GOT140.com. We then featured the best tweets in a series of commercials that ran both on HBO and online.In conjunction with an all-day Season 1 marathon on April 1st, we hosted a full day of conversations with the Cast, Crew and Super Fans of Game of Thrones at HBO Connect. This was designed to create awareness for the last catch-up stunt while driving consistent conversation on the social platforms leading into the premiere at 9pm. We’re lining upmore ofﬁcial Conversations for later in the season as well.-Miso Promotion-We launched the ﬁrst ofﬁcial HBO Tumblr for Game of Thrones. It’s designed to celebrate the amazing wealth of fan generated art in homage to the series.We focused our premiere day activities around a single hashtag that we used across platforms to rally the fan community: #GOTDayWe’re extremely happy with the results. Game of Thrones premiered at 9pm to a series high of 3.9MM viewers a 74% improvement when compared to last season’s premiere,53% in comparison to the season average and 27% when compared to last season’s ﬁnale.

In the future, I can’t imagine amajor event where the audience doesn’t become part of the story itself.”Anthony Rose, CTO of Zeebox “There will be any second or ﬁrst screen”.Brian Solis, principal at Altimeter Group: “...networks, advertisers, and producers,must think beyond technology and rethink experiences.
