To the fans closer to the Comic-Con events of the days ahead HBO has arranged for talent from their shows to act as social media correspondents throughout the event.
HBO’s Sabrina Caluori explains:
We’ve created some really cool ways for fans to go behind the scenes at Comic-Con this year through our social TV site, HBO Connect. We wanted to give everyone, even those not attending “the Con,” a way to get in on the HBO activities there and share in the fun.
On Friday, July 13 HBO Connect will kick off our Comic-Con activities with the launch of an exclusive sweepstakes for the chance to win a limited edition Game of Thrones branded Xbox 360, not sold in stores. Fans can visit HBO Connect and follow #sdccgotfan to enter.
Celebrity correspondents from Game of Thrones and True Blood will be walking the floor at Comic-Con, tweeting about their interactions with the fans, taking photos and doing giveaways. For Game of Thrones, Kristian Nairn who plays “Hodor,” will tweet from the floor on Friday, July 13 here. For True Blood, Janina Gavankar who plays “Luna” will tweet from the floor on Saturday here.
Also on Saturday, July 14, HBO Connect will give True Blood fans the opportunity to “flock to unlock” the exclusive Comic-Con trailer. If fans tweet #sdcctruebie 150,000 times, HBO will unlock the trailer on HBO Connect.
