Pay your cable bill by April 12, because that's the day that Season 5 of HBO's Game of Thrones premieres on the premium cable network. 

And bonus: comedies Veep (Season 4) and Silicon Valley (Season 2) will premiere on the same night. HBO made the announcement at it's Television Critic's Association event today. 

While there was no word on the debut of the much-anticipated HBO GO standalone streaming service, the word in 2014 was that HBO was planning to debut the standalone service at the same time as Game of Thrones Season 5 — potentially making this announcement even bigger.
