While last weekend brought about the highly-anticipated premiere for the fifth season of HBO’s wildly-popular Game of Thrones, those that missed out on the premiere last night don’t need to worry about missing the latest happenings in Westeros: if you have an Xbox One or Xbox 360, you’re covered.

Microsoft and HBO announced today that the first episode of Game of Thrones‘ fifth season will be available for free this week for owners of either an Xbox One or Xbox 360 with an active Xbox Live subscription. Coming off the premiere’s debut last night, users of either console can view the entire first episode for free on Xbox Live with a plethora of special behind-the-scenes videos and bonus features.

The first episode of Game of Thrones: Season 5 is available to view through Xbox Live now through April 16th, 2015 on either Xbox One or Xbox 360 – the remainder of the season can be viewed through the HBO Go app available on both platforms as new episodes are released.
