It's a fair to say that pretty much everyone is familiar with 'Game of Thrones' at this point. It's had years of dominating the Emmy Awards ceremonies and has fired both the characters, stars and original author into being household names.

HBO

Ever keen to get involved in forward-thinking, innovative television, HBO has announced it will launch a streaming video service in 2015 that will not require users to have a cable or satellite subscription.
