Winter Is Coming: The exact timing of when this hits HBO GO is a bit confusing.
I’m trying to find out if it debuts tonight at midnight or Friday night at midnight (which would technically be Saturday). I’ll let you know. It’s the latter. Either way, I expect it will get posted online by HBO a few days after its HBO GO debut.
