The season 5 finale of Game of Thrones was a record breaker for broadcaster Sky. The fantasy drama became Sky's most watched entertainment programme, with 3.1million viewers. On Demand figures were equally impressive. Seasons 1-4 on Sky Box Sets hit record 23 million downloads. The record-breaking audience figure includes live audiences for the 2am simulcast and 9pm broadcast on 15 June, as well as customers watching their Sky+ recordings and catching up on demand over the next seven days. When figures for the streaming services Sky Go and NOW TV are taken into account, the total audience will be even higher.

Sky’s Managing Director of Content Gary Davey commented: “We know our customers love being able to choose how, where and when they watch their favourite show – whether that’s staying up until 2am for the global simulcast or re-watching every episode from the very beginning – and we’re thrilled to offer them that flexibility. Re-defining the meaning of ‘must-see TV’, we’re proud to be a part of the Game of Thrones phenomenon. In the aftermath of a record-breaking end to the fifth season on Sky, we can’t wait to see what will happen next.”
