As announced on Twitter over the weekend, HBO will be showing a marathon of the critically acclaimed novel-turned-TV series “Game of Thrones” from December 26 through 31.

The hit Westerosian show has already been made available on the premium cable network’s direct TV alternative HBO 2 and will air one season per day.

With the penultimate seventh season still in the filming process, HBO is giving fans a chance to relieve the show’s earlier glory, while also allowing others to catch up before the latest season’s premiere around June or July.

Those who have access to HBO’s  cable or satellite package could also view the marathon online for free via HBO Go.

Every Game of Thrones episode is also available at HBO on Amazon for $14.99 a month (P742). Khristian Ibarrola
