“Game of Thrones: Behind the Scenes” Event Connects with Rainbow Broadband

The “Game of Thrones” universe just conquered the streets of New York City. Astor Place in the East Village morphed into an interactive “Game of Thrones” village for two days in November, as HBO celebrated the DVD release of their flagship show’s sixth season.

Gigabit Internet services from Rainbow Broadband helped make the event happen, as fans were immersed in “Thrones” highlight moments via virtual reality (VR), green screens, and props and costumes from the show. GOT-themed structures surrounded the famous downtown rotating Cube landmark, including a Dothraki hut, odes to Hodor, VR “battle training” in Castle Black, and photo opportunities on an authentic Iron Throne.
