Game of Thrones season 4's first episode will be simulcast on both sides of the Atlantic.

The news was confirmed by Sky last night (March 25) at the UK launch of the new run, with the broadcaster announcing that the show will be screened in the middle of the night on Sky Atlantic, coinciding with the US East Coast airing.

Game of Thrones begins its fourth season on HBO on Sunday, April 6 at 9pm ET, meaning it will air on Sky Atlantic at 2am on Monday, April 7.

The opening episode of the fantasy drama will also still be shown on Sky Atlantic at 9pm on Monday April 7 in its traditional timeslot.
