Game Of Thrones: The Complete First Season has achieved HBO’s most successful first week DVD/Blu-ray sales of all time, beating such heavy hitters as The Sopranos, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, with over 350,000 units sold.

Speaking to SciFiNow, Alfie Allen who plays Theon Greyjoy observed, “It’s going to be like The Wire in that it’s already achieved some cult status but it takes a while to achieve that. I think when it came out in box set – it took five or six years for it to come out – and it became really, really big in the UK, and I think the Game Of Thrones DVD launch will definitely get the ball rolling.”

In a statement, HBO Home Entertainment president Henry McGee said: “What we are seeing is Game Of Thrones being a hit across all platforms – network, disc and digital.”

Game Of Thrones Season 2 begins April 2 on Sky Atlantic HD.
