Screener episodes for TV critics usually, so they can review in advance and have instant reviews...Why would they release 4 screener episodes in the first place?
One i could understand, two at a maximum...........but four?
I know they need them in advance for reviews, but releasing 4 seems a bit excessive to me. Some sites are claiming there could be up to 6 episodes eventually leaked.Screener episodes for TV critics usually, so they can review in advance and have instant reviews...
Though screeners are never in HD, so I'll pass but HBO done stuffed up.
That's what I usually think of the first half of every season.It's a bit strange. Perhaps they're a bit worried about future viability and the story going downhill so want the public feedback asap.
I just watched the first ep and I know I'm thinking "And........ where the **** is this going?"
Some have the wartermark at different times, and others have hidden artifacts or codes in the video. Warner could track it and ban whoever it was from getting any preview copies. But depending on how much it pisses off Warner and HBO it could lead to them now doing secret cinema screenings for the press like they do with movies. or have them watch them in Warner offices.I would have thought they would individually watermark the review copies
