Game of Thrones has always been a phenomenon that has broken records around the world as it took it by storm.
Season 7 of Game of Thones is no different in those terms and has already been breaking a number of records in the US, but it isn’t just in the US, the season is breaking records in the UK too.
Alongside the announcement of the Sky Soundbox TV speaker and the reveal that Dolby Atmos support will be coming to Sky Q in just a couple of weeks, Sky also revealed that the latest series has already broken their own records for having the biggest consolidated audience.
Here’s what they said:
The first episode in the series, Dragonstone has now reach a total of 4.7 million viewers in the UK.
Dragonstone almost doubled its audience in the week after it launched, adding an additional 1.85m to the original 2.8 million who watched it last Monday (17 July). This stand out performance also meant the episode secured the fifth biggest programme audience of the year in Sky homes, outperforming Sherlock, Call the Midwife and Line of Duty.
The 4.7m figure is made up of those who watched the 2am simulcast (live or on demand) or the 9pm transmission last Monday, those who have chosen to catch up over the past seven days through on demand on Sky Atlantic or online streaming service NOW TV, and customers who recorded the episode and watched it back.
So far the first and second episode of the series has been aired on Sky Atlantic and the third episode will be shown on the same channel this Monday at 2AM and then again on Sky at 9PM on the same day.
