It’s almost impossible to avoid “Game of Thrones” headlines as the show prepares for its series finale on Sunday.
Fans in the UK have to stay up until 2 a.m. to watch the simulcast, or else wait a whole 19 hours after the show airs in the US to watch the latest episode.
This can make avoiding spoilers quite tricky.
Luckily, an insurance company is offering fans up to £100 ($130) in compensation through its “Spoiler Insurance Policy” if family, friends, or social media accounts ruin the plotline of the show for them.
Claimants will also get a free NOW TV pass so they can watch all eight seasons of the show.

Unless you don’t have an internet connection, it’s almost impossible to avoid “Game of Thrones” headlines in the lead-up to the series finale on Sunday — and if you’re a fan, clicking on the wrong thing can mean spoilers galore.

Luckily, one insurance company has come up with a way to repay fans when this tragic moment strikes.

UK-based Endsleigh Insurance Services is offering fans up to £100 ($130) in compensation through its “Spoiler Insurance Policy” if family, friends, or social media accounts ruin the plotline of the show for them.

The initiative is targeted towards fans based in the UK, who have to wait up until 2 a.m. to watch the simulcast or else wait a whole 19 hours to watch the latest episodes when it airs a second time on Sky Atlantic at 9 p.m. on Monday.

Naturally, most fans wait until the more reasonably-timed screening, which leaves plenty of time for plot leaks, especially in the lead-up to the show’s finale.

However, there are only 10 pay-outs and TV passes available — so you’d better act quickly.

Julia Alpan, head of marketing at Endsleigh, said: “Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows of the last decade and the finale promises to bring in some of the largest audiences on record.

“With the show historically airing on US screens ahead of the UK, spoilers have always been an issue — so we wanted to address that head-on with the first ever spoiler insurance policy, that will offer financial compensation for anyone whose day is ruined by an unwanted plot reveal.

“Whether it’s a colleague at work who has stayed up and streamed the show at 2 a.m., or a rogue news article giving away the story on social media — our Spoiler Cover will help provide consolation for fans who have had the ending revealed prematurely.”

The company added that while it’s the first time it has offered “spoiler insurance,” if the feedback is positive, it might roll the policy …read more
