The next night, all six HBO channels -- HBO, HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Comedy, HBO Zone and HBO Latino -- will simulcast the premiere episode at 9:00 PM ET/PT.

Based on the first book in the best-selling series by George R.R. Martin, "Game of Thrones" tells the tale of the feud among noble families for control of the Iron Throne. This epic series transports the viewer into the medieval fantasy world of Westeros. This elaborately-filmed series could well contend in a slew of categories at the Emmy Awards.
