Staying Spoiler-Free During Game of Thrones Season 6

Winter has come. Finally. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, the wait between the end of Season 5 and the premiere of Season 6 was a long one. Now that the hit HBO show has caught up with George R.R. Martin’s books, there’s been nowhere to look for answers to some of the series’ biggest questions.

This makes total sense… unfortunately in most areas they are forced to purchase bundled packages which include voice that many people in the deaf community do not use.
