The finale of Season 5 of Sky Atlantic’s Game of Thrones delivered a record audience of 3.1 million in the UK, making it the most-watched Sky entertainment programme ever in Sky homes.
The record-breaking audience figure includes live audiences for the 2am simulcast and 9pm broadcast on 15 June, as well as customers watching their Sky+ recordings and catching up on demand over the next seven days. More fans than ever before enjoyed the flexibility of watching the world’s most talked about TV show when and where they wanted.
Sky says that when figures for the streaming services Sky Go and NOW TV are taken into account, the total audience will be even higher.
Meanwhile, Seasons 1-4 of the smash show have hit a record 23 million downloads on Sky Box Sets.
