New Game of Thrones Season 6 trailer chooses violence
James R | On 09, Mar 2016
“I choose violence,” declares Cersei in the first full, red-band trailer for Game of Thrones Season 6. Just in case you thought that she was going to do anything else in the upcoming run of HBO’s fantasy epic other than wreaky bloody revenge upon the world.
For those who thought that Season 5 was a little light on the conflict, the latest video for Game of Thrones provides a reassuring amount of violence, with battles galore stuffed into the teaser’s short runtime – all accompanied by a suitably sombre cover of Wicked Game, performed by James Vincent McMorrow. There’s so much blood being spattered that there’s little room to ponder what will happen next with Jon Snow, although glimpses of Kit Harington and Carice van Houten’s Melisandre will provide enough fuel for speculation in the cold nights leading up to the show’s return in April.
With the TV show essentially caught up with the books, we really do have no idea what’s in store for Westeros. What we do know is this: Game of Thrones Season 6 will air in the UK on Monday 25th April at 9pm, with Sky Atlantic also simulcasting the episode at 2am so that fans can watch at the same time as it’s on in the US with no fear of spoilers.
We also know that the show will be available to watch online legally without Sky through NOW. The VOD service gives non-Sky customers streaming access to Sky’s biggest and best TV channels, including Sky 1 (Arrow and The Flash) and FOX (The Walking Dead). That means you can stream Game of Thrones Season 6 live, legally, along with other shows, for £6.99 a month. Each episode will be available on-demand post-broadcast – which also means you can catch-up with the programme on NOW on Monday morning (after the 2am broadcast) with your breakfast. There’s even a free 14-day trial for new customers.

“I’m not a fighting man,” says Davos. “I apologise for what you’re about to see.” Judging by this, though, no apologies are needed whatsoever.
