OCS will once again offer an exceptional feature for the release of season 8 of Game of Thrones. As the platform had already done for Season 7, the final episodes of the series will be available for viewing in real time as they are broadcast in the United States. This time, however, subscribers will have the choice between the original version with French subtitles (VOSTFR) and the French dubbed version (VF).
As a reminder, the cult show is back on April 14, 2019. The first two episodes of Game of Thrones will be 54 and 58 minutes long. The longest of the six episodes of the season will be 1h22. In France, the episodes are aired during the night from Sunday to Monday at 3am. After the live broadcast, they will be available from 6 am on OCS Go and will be rebroadcast again on Monday evening in prime time.

Interviewed by Pure Media a few months ago, Boris Duschenay, Director of Programs at OCS, indicated that “special precautions” were taken regarding the simultaneous availability of episodes of the series to avoid leaks. “The identities of the dubbing agents have been provided to HBO. They have special badges to access the laboratory. It really is the FBI! “,” he said. So far, no real leaks have come out, only rumors and theories.
