Good grief. It's pretty shocking that subtitles aren't offered on Game of Thrones by default - you have to have a fancy TV or a fancy receiving box. It's not as if it's an obscure programme. I live in the UK, near London, and literally every station along the line between my home and the central London terminus had a Game of Thrones advert!

I have exceedingly limited spoons right now, but I'll be looking out for any petitions to Sky to sort themselves out.
