New 'Game Of Thrones' Viewer Guide Launches

Although it might not be hard to keep the Lannisters straight from the Starks, the world of George R.R. Martin's "Game Of Thrones" is expansive and can be a tad hard to keep track of. But now a little less so, as HBO has just launched a new GOT Viewer's Guide in anticipation of the Season Four premiere this Sunday, April 6, at 9 p.m. ET.

The guide includes interactive maps of Westeros and Essos, along with multiple level of zoom, character bios, House guides and shareable content. Additionally, the guide features videos that explore episodes further. These "Inside The Episode" videos will include a look at locations, props, costumes, as well as interviews with cast, series creators/exec. producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and context from author Martin.

Additionally, HBO2 is getting invaded by the GOT-verse with a weekend-long marathon that will show all three previous seasons consecutively. According to a release from the network, "beginning on Friday, April 4 at 9:00 a.m. ET/PT, HBO2 will reign when all three previous seasons (10 episodes each) of the epic series are played back-to-back, twice, for 60 straight hours." The final episode of Season 3 will end at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, April 6, just in time for the Season 4 premiere on HBO.
