Nearly one million viewers tuned in for Sunday’s final episode, making it the night’s most-watched pay/specialty program. In addition, more than 11,000 people watched the finale at Cineplex theatres in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. The Game of Thrones Season 4 Finale Fan event also generated an estimated 2.3 million impressions on Twitter. The show’s season four premiere attracted more than 1.1 million viewers in April, making it the most-watched premiere in HBO Canada history. That premiere’s audience was 31% larger than the season three premiere.
