An official statement by Star Network reads,
"The telecast of 'Game of Thrones' on Star World and Star World Premiere will not only excite existing fans but also captivate first-time audiences in India. This is just the first in a line of exceptional content we have planned for the year."
The final episode of the fifth season showed one of the main characters, Jon Snow essayed by British actor, Kit Harington lying lifeless in the snow. It is speculated that the first episode of the sixth season, titled 'And Now His Watch His Ended', will reveal Jon Snow's fate.
