Every day, thousands of Game of Thrones fans visit Winter Is Coming (WIC) and FanSided to get the latest scoop on the series that is now the most popular HBO show in the network’s history. The new app aims to create the ultimate source of Thrones news and opinions for the rabid fan base.
“I think what is special about this app, aside from the content, is its versatility,” said FanSided CPO Matt Blake. “Users have the choice to not only get all the posts WIC has to offer but they can also opt in to receive Game of Thrones news from FanSided’s other entertainment sites, including Hidden Remote, Lightly Buzzed and of course, FanSided.com.”
“WIC is hands-down the best source on the web for Game of Thrones news and opinions,” said FanSided VP of Content & Strategy, Patrick Allen. “Along with the site’s new coverage, readers will now be able to get the other rich content WIC has to offer like Winter is Coming Live, our recap show and Game of Owns, our official podcast.”
“WIC features a passionate and vocal readership,” added Blake. “These new apps allow those users to continue their conversations and comment on articles regardless of what device they are using.”
WinterIsComing.net has long been the leading Game of Thrones news and information site on the net, originally launched in November of 2008. Today, the site is a proud member of the FanSided Network, which features over 280 sports, entertainment and lifestyle properties.
