Game of Thrones Season 7 Opener Most Watched Premiere in HBO History

…. Except for all you Foxtel users. Back on U.S. soil the season premiere drew in 10.1 million viewers when it aired on the channel and grew to 16.8 million when you take into account the multiple platforms you can watch it on (computers, phones, tablets, your neighbours dog).

Locally, after the debacle that Murdoch’s Foxtel inflicted on their patrons by having the system fall over (further exacerbated by a failing internet infrastructure that our utterly idiotic federal government have no clue the value or application of upgrading will do for society as a whole), the episode smashed 799,000 views.

Seven seasons in and its bigger than ever.
