Episode two titled; HBO On Demand to get Thrones content
By Winter Is Coming on in News, Speculation.

We had thought that every Sunday would give us a new episode title, but episode two’s title came a little early, thanks to Spoiler TV. The second episode of Game of Thrones is entitled “The Kingsroad”, according to them, and they also have synopses of the first two episodes.

In related news, HBO will add a number of Thrones featurettes to HBO On Demand on March 21st. These include a 3-minute video called “About Game of Thrones”, another 3-minute video called “Invitation to the Set”, a trailer (which may or may not be new), and two 1-minute profile videos, one on House Stark and one on Houses Lannister and Baratheon. I have no idea whether any of this will air on HBO or be added to HBO.com, but hopefully it will at some point.

UPDATE: It looks like one of the On Demand videos, “About Game of Thrones” has already been added to iTunes. Thanks to @JessicaChirico for these couple screen caps of new footage contained in this vid. If anyone is able to get the full video on YouTube, I’ll be sure to embed it here. TV.com has the streaming video and it’s all old stuff with the exception of the below screen caps.

UPDATE by HmR: We speculate that they are chopping up and redressing the long Inside Game of Thrones video from December. “About GoT” corresponds to the first third of it, followed by house Stark, and houses Lannister and Baratheon content. The last part of the original video is the presentation of the sets. I think this is a good move, promotionally speaking, as several short clips are better than a long one with several themes.

    “The Kingsroad”

    I says what it is and it is what it says.

    “unimaginitive” accusation in 3… 2…

    Hbo is doing the best they can to get the viewer familiar with the people and The world so that “it’s not all too much” the first few episodes to new viewers.

    I think The Kingsroad is a good title. It’s strange to see the episode descriptions. They seem so TVish ;-) i guess that makes sense.

    OnDemand is a content package that some cable providers typically provide for free to subscribers of their premium channels(HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, etc). This package usually contains things like special features, past season episodes, current episodes(usually the day after premier) and so on. Not sure if they make the content available elsewhere.

    Rinoa De la Pica,

    I’m given to understand that On Demand is online streaming content for HBO subscribers, and not an alternative for non-subscribers.

    Which gives me the sad, a little.

    And another country that will air it on the same week as the US.
    I can not understand Canal + Spain way of thinking here. They’re missing a HUGE shot with this series. May 9th?? Seriously? And that’s because they want their own series, “Crematorio”, (which is really really good, btw) to be finished and thus be able to use the monday time frame. But I just don’t get it.

    It would be cool if HBO provided On Demand through their website…but I don’t think there would be much money to be made, unless it involved signing up for some membership to watch HBO series online.

    If you’re provider doesn’t offer On Demand, you may want to switch to Comcast or AT&T.

    There is a good chance they would make these available online as well as it helps drive buzz for the show. Episodes of course would not be available on their website.

    True, May 9th may be not so much later, but Canal + has or is already airing shows only two or three days after US airing, (Fringe, Lost). It’s just for scheduling reasons, I’m sure, and that bothers me. I’m a paying customer of Canal + since more than 10 years ago, but for htis it is like they’re saying, “go, watch the show ‘any other way’, we can wait”.

    I just check every Monday morning. They don’t change-over most of the content until then. They will add series episodes during the week before that, but most things like this would be added on a Monday (and lo and behold, the 21st is a Monday).

    Great title.

    As for On Demand, I’m glad they’re doing House Stark and House Lannister. It should help put names to faces. I’m surprised they don’t have videos available yet in a separate Game of Thrones folder. I thought for Boardwalk Empire and Treme they had this kind of stuff posted several months before their premiers, not to mention all the True Blood On Demand extras. Then again there’s no Mildred Pierce posted either, and that’s premiering earlier than GoT.

    Not really. Ned is on route to Kings Landing and Jon/Tyrion to The Wall only 3 chapters after where episode 1 ends. I assume the first 15 mins will be taken up with the Lannisters at breakfast discussing Bran, Jon giving Needle to Arya, then all the goodbyes.

    Mildred Pierce is a mini-series, which my explain the lack of On Demand content.
    I do remember a lot of Boardwalk Empire stuff posted early. I don’t remember if it was months. It could have been. It is standard operating procedure for HBO to do this with its series — behind the scenes, get to know the characters, get to know the setting, etc. I don’t recall HBO’s mini-series receiving many On Demand extras. I remember a lot of extras for Band of Brothers and The Pacific, however. Most of it was historical and very good, as I recall.

    Some other random thoughts:

    I have never heard of HBO making their shows available online. If you want off season reruns you’ve got to buy the DVDs of wait HBO to put them back up On Demand. By the way, I’ve had Comcast, and now I have Verizon. I’ve noticed many more On Demand reruns available on Verizon.

    I checked out the HBO link above, and it appears the videos referenced in this post will be available On Demand under “Inside Series.” I expect much more once Game of Thrones has its own section On Demand.

    I can’t see why HBO wouldn’t run that 11 minute “Inside Game of Thrones” video On Demand. It is excellent. I (and I guess most of you) have watched the thing a bunch of times and have showed it to a bunch of people.

    The Maisie Williams “The Artisans” video should definitely be put On Demand just because she’s as cute as a button (and smooth as summer silk, of course).

    Yea, that’s gotta be her, but that’s obviously the King’s arrival at Winterfell, so I’m still not sure how she gets back in time to be in the Stark family lineup. Oh wait, quick as a cat.

    Kingsroad is a perfect title. Also, I’d say this synopsis pretty much cements House Gatewatch’s longtime (and honestly, kinda obvious) speculation as to the episode’s climax. Irregardless, The WiC & FaB & HmR Awesome Scripting Team, Great Job!

    The ep titles should be coming thick and fast between now and the series premiere. They are useful to HBO in their scheduling and promotion.
    I still think everything HBO does between now and then, and throughout the series if need be, should be focused on the characters and who the heck they are in the great scheme of things. A voiceover prologue before every ep, although unwieldy and tiresome, remains the best hope of letting viewers who do not watch five re-runs of each ep re-engage if, God help them, they miss an ep, go to the bathroom, or get a phone call while watching.

    Mike Chair,

    If you have Comcast, you can now watch almost every HBO series and miniseries online. Go to http://www.fancast.com. Right now they have all seasons of Deadwood, In Treatment, Six Feet Under, True Blood, The Wire, etc. Of course you need an HBO subscription to watch online.

    It looks like whatever fancast.com is offering online (at least for HBO) Verizon has available On Demand. For instance, my mom still has Comcast and, right now, she does not have Deadwood On Demand. I’ve got Verizon and have Deadwood 07-12 On Demand. Fancast.com has Deadwood 07-12 available for online viewing. This doesn’t help my mom who has no computer. Rome? I presently do not have Rome On Demand. Neither does fancast.com.

    N.B. this only seems to be the case for off season and concluded series. When Game of Thrones is in season, for example, the current season’s episodes will be available On Demand on both Comcast and Verizon — as well as other the other Game of Thrones goodies.

    ?
    For me, Fancast has every single episode of Deadwood (and every other HBO series) available to watch online. Comcast On Demand only has episodes 7-12.

    I don’t really see why that should impact the Fancast content your mom gets as a Comcast customer. Maybe it has to do with where you live? Apparently different content is offered to different areas of the US. I’d call Comcast and ask them why she’s not getting access to all the content.

    This is OT, but I thought I’d post some thoughts on the latest trailer from a friend of mine who was not read the books:

    I watched the trailer and it is rather confusing, I honestly don’t understand what anyone is saying or why they’re saying it but hopefully all will be illuminated once I get to watch the actual show. I think they could have done a better job cutting that trailer for nonfans because I wasn’t entirely impressed with it, but what ever a trailer is certainly not a show.

    He knows nothing about GoT other than the fact that I’m really excited for it. This is someone who works as a film editor, and I can confidently vouch for him not being your average not-HBO’s-demographic idiot.

    To me this just furthers my belief that we’re going to need something different from the trailers we’ve already been given in order to sell this to the general public. But it is also just one person out of many.

    On a serious note, reopen Horse Gate: Our Khal is on a genuine, upside-down-necked nag in that screen cap. The poor animal looks like a refuge from a donkey caravan.
    Where is a real stallion when you need one?

    Ed,

    It’s the reward video from part 1 of the Maester’s Chain.

    ::edit::

    I think that scene should be episode 2. The title calls it a “pilot preview” or whatever, which I’m pretty sure, isn’t the case.

    More Drogo than we’ve seen. I kind of agree, not an attractive nag. But then maybe they are going for the Mongol touch.

    Is the well-looking thing the Moon’s Door where they make people FLYYY??

    In my head I always saw it as more of a balcony/terrace without any railing. Is it just me?

    In the book the Moon Door is a Door in the wall of the great hall that leads into nowhere, no balcony or terrace just thin air once you open the door. The show has changed it so it is a trapdoor in the floor of the hall.

    Lovin the TV version of the Moon Door! Although I guess this means the High Hall juts out over the edge of the mountain?
