Game of Thrones season 7: to stop spoilers, HBO won't release screeners for this year's episodes

And last year, while no screeners were made available, a mishap on the part of a Canadian screening service meant that the first episode of season six still hit the internet several hours ahead of its planned broadcast slot.

The need for secrecy has also arguably increased in the past few years, due to the fact that the show has long since overtaken its source material, George RR Martin’s ongoing book series.

Last November, a number of significant alleged spoilers about the season seven storylines, believed by many to be credible, were posted on the website Reddit. 

Game of Thrones season seven will consist of just even episodes, in contrast to the 10-episode runs of previous seasons, and will premiere on July 16 on HBO and, for UK viewers, on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.
