When HBO announced HBO Now (it's new cable-free streaming service billed at $14.99 per month), it also premiered the second trailer for Season 5 of Game of Thrones, which will be available everywhere starting April 12, 2015. HBO will apparently air the show live worldwide keyed to the 9pm EDT time. However, this will not be the case in the United Kingdom, whose residents will also not get access to HBO Now for some reason. It's unclear whether we in California will be able to see the show at 6pm PDT or have to wait until 9pm PDT (that has currently been the practice).
