HBO is giving fans a chance to relive every shocking moment of the first three seasons of "Game of Thrones" before Season 4 begins Sunday.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Friday, HBO2 will air all three previous seasons back-to-back--twice--for 60 straight hours leading up to the Season 4 premiere at 8 p.m. Sunday on the HBO main channel. In addition, will launch the all-new "Game of Thrones" Viewer's Guide online companion, which will offer exclusive content for every episode of the series.

From HBO:
The Viewer's Guide's fully responsive design features all-new interactive maps of Westeros and Essos, with three levels of zoom, along with character bios from every season, an up-to-date "Guide to the Houses" and shareable episodic content.

The new Viewer's Guide also includes episodic videos that delve deeper into the story, including an "Inside the Episode" feature with series creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss; "Interviews" with cast members providing reactions to pivotal moments in the season's arc, with context from author George R.R. Martin; and video featurettes that allow the Game of Thrones crew to pull back the curtain on how the show's look is achieved, with intricate details and photography from the set, including costumes, locations, props and armor.
