HBO announces release date for Game of Thrones season 7 on DVD/Blu-Ray


Great news Game of Thrones fans! You won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the season 7 DVD/Blu-Ray.

Partnering with IGN, HBO has announced the official release date for Game of Thrones season 7 on DVD/Blu-Ray will be December 12, later this year. That’s right, folks, now you can bring the mass murderer Arya Stark home for Christmas.

This Holiday Season will see stockings stuffed with the entrails of House Frey. And, while Tarly chestnuts are being roasted on an open dragon-fire, the Night King can be nipping at your nose. Who wouldn’t want to watch Littlefinger die, choking on his own blood, as yuletides are being sung by a choir?

While you’re dreaming of a White Walker Christmas,

on the history of the Seven Kingdoms narrated by Viserys himself, Harry Lloyd.

Neat, that. Here are some of the features you can expect on your very own copy of Game of Thrones season 7 on DVD/Blu-Ray (December 12), or digital download (September 25):
