HBO is looking to sign up more subscribers, and has decided to let all Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners watch the premiere episode of Game of Thrones Season Four for free, at least until April 14. The episode is already on track to become the most-pirated TV episode ever, and HBO is going to help spread the fun.

According to Variety, HBO said the sampling deal with Microsoft had been in the works for some time and wasn’t in response to the piracy of the episode.

Separately, HBO has also posted the entire first episode of Mike Judge’s new comedy Silicon Valley to YouTube, where it will be available for free until April 28.
