Today it announced a new relationship with HBO Home Entertainment whereby fans can purchase and watch episodes of Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, and other hit HBO shows via FandangoNOW, from the convenience of their smart TVs, video game consoles, Rokus, and mobile devices.

Read on for more details about the HBO shows coming to FandangoNOW.


External Link Game of Thrones Live Concert Sweepstakes. Since its debut five years ago, the Game of Thrones main theme song has become one of television's most recognizable pieces of music. I bet everyone here can easily call to mind some of the show's other notable compositions, too: the stringed theme of House Stark, the drum beats of the Dothraki, the piano of the Light of the Seven, the foreboding Rains of Castamere. Next year, fans will have a unique chance to listen to these songs live in an immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life using state-of-the-art technology, featuring Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, a full orchestra, and a choir.

The concert will be touring in 28 cities throughout the United States and Canada, from February to April 2017. Better still, one lucky fan will have a chance to win two free tickets to see the concert live in Los Angeles on March 23, 2017 (airfare, hotel accommodations and and additional prizes included). Enter the sweepstakes here by November 30, 12 PM PT.

Anyone planning on getting tickets to the concert? What song from the Game of Thrones soundtrack would you most like to see performed?
