Game of Thrones season 4 lands on Amazon Instant Video + Google Play in the UK

Just days after its conclusion on TV, the fourth season of Game of Thrones is available for Brits to stream through Google Play and Amazon Instant Video. The entire ten-episode run will set you back £18.49 in SD or £24.49 in HD from Google Play or £16.99-23.99 from Amazon. Google offers a little bonus content with a season purchase, however, including an inside look at the Valyrian language, a recap of season three, and a preview of some of the new characters and locales in season four. If you want to pay by the episode, each one will cost £2.49 in HD or £1.89 in SD.

There's no sign of the latest season appearing on either platform in the U.S. yet, so American fans will need to go directly to HBO for their Thrones fix.
