Game of Thrones Future HBO Game of Thrones Season 1 DVD/Blu Ray Release Date & Bonus Features

After much wait, the highly anticipated release date of Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season on DVD & Blu-ray has finally been revealed.

On March 6, 2012, the first installment of George R. R. Martin’s epic tale of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will be making its way to home video, with a listed price of $79.98 for Blu-ray and $59.99 for DVD.

Included in the release will be all 10-episodes from the first season of Game of Thrones (seven of which will include audio commentaries), a 30-minute “Making Game of Thrones” featurette, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the series’ memorable opening title sequence, plus many more.

For those that option for the 1080p Blu-ray release of Game of Thrones, you’ll find four additional extras not available on DVD. On top of an exclusive guide to Westeros (a slimmer version will be available on DVD), the high-def release will also include “Anatomy of an Episode,” which will provide an in-episode experience for viewers to see how they made the memorable sixth episode, “A Golden Crown.”

Whether you’re a fan of Game of Thrones or just someone who’s been interested in finding out what all of last year’s water cooler talk of “dwarfs” and “bastard kings” was about, now is your chance to own one of the best television series of 2011. Plus, it’ll be a great lead-in for Game of Thrones season 2, which will premiere a month later on HBO.

Oh, and don’t worry about the price tag – it’s rare for stores to charge the listed price for DVDs.

  1. I’m probably going to buy this. Despite the fact that I’ve only seen one episode

  2. Amazing show i thought it was due for release before Xmas

  3. I’m really looking forward to owning the Blu-Ray release, but it will have to wait until about $30 is shaved off the initial price tag at least. I’m sure I’ll be able to find a good deal eventually.

  4. Wowza… That’s expensive for 10 episodes but I wants it!

  5. I think Amazaon has a pre-order discount going for the Blu-Ray set.

  6. About time. How am I supposed to get the rest of my roommates psyched about Game of Thrones in ONE month? Yeah, that’s what I thought. A holiday release would have made much more sense. And to top it off, it’s not like the episodes are still showing up on HBO these days for DVRing anyway. I despise HBO’s DVD release date game. Despise it.

  7. Seems like poor planning to hold back season 1. As with any new season show, you must assume that your viewing audience had to be trickling in at various episodes, whether by word of mouth, interesting previews or channel surfing. For those whose attention was caught later in the season, reasonable “catch-up time” to view the series from the beginning would seem to be a good way to secure a larger dedicated audience. As they have not released season 1 before season 2 airs, they will no doubt, lose those people who realize they still don’t quite know who is who and what is going on and so……it’ll be easy to move to another program. Also, I’m not even going to try and guess what kind of marketing strategy involves missing the Christmas buying frenzy…..??
