OCS will broadcast Season 8 of Game of Thrones in VF and VOSTFR simultaneously in Spain compared to HBO in the United States. The episodes will then be available very quickly on OCS Go and rebroadcast the next day in prime time. An exceptional device for a final season which acts as a television event.
OCS will again offer an exceptional device for the release of season 8 of Game of Thrones. As the platform had already done for season 7, the last episodes of the series can be viewed in real time at the same time as they are broadcast in the United States. But this time, subscribers will have the choice between the original version with Spanish subtitles (VOSTFR) and the version dubbed in Spanish (VF).

As a reminder, the cult show resumes on April 14, 2019. The first two episodes of Game of Thrones will last 54 and 58 minutes. The longest of the six episodes of the season will be 1h22. In Spain, the episodes are broadcast overnight from Sunday to Monday at 3am. After the live, they will be available from 6 a.m. on OCS Go and broadcast again on Monday evening in prime time.

Questioned by Pure Media a few months ago, Boris Duschenay, program director of OCS, indicated that “special precautions” were taken regarding the simultaneous availability of episodes of the series to avoid leaks. “The identities of the agents handling the dubbing have been released to HBO. They have special badges to access the lab. It's really the FBI!” he said. For the moment, no real leaks have come out, only rumors and theories.
