What do I need to do?
Head to the Boston AT&T Flagship store at 12 pm ET on Tuesday, April 2, and you will have a chance to meet Kristian Nairn who will be greeting Game of Thrones fans, taking photos and “holding the door” for the activation.

Game of Thrones is back for the last season on Sunday, April 14 at 9/8c on HBO and will be available to stream anytime on HBO GO and HBO NOW, in addition to HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
