I hope this somehow forces HBO to get their shows out in the UK in a better way. There's literally no way to watch them online (legally), is there? I'm kind of moving off buying DVDs, and who can be strawberry floated watching stuff week to week with ads if it eventually does get broadcast over here? The only way I'm getting to see Game of Thrones S2 is if I pirate it.
Well there's Sky Atlantic, which has been showing HBO stuff pretty close to the US air dates including GoT. The problem is you need to pay Sky's ridiculous fees and get a dish installed for the privilege. And then enjoy adverts on top of everything else!
I've been buying the GoT Blu-Rays because it's ace, but I have no qualms about downloading the episodes from Usenet as they air.
