Endsleigh Insurance Services in the UK has announced a new spoiler coverage plan for “GoT” fans who’ve been subjected to unwanted plot leaks. “With the show historically airing on US screens ahead of the UK, spoilers have always been an issue,” says Julia Alpan, head of marketing for Endsleigh, in a statement. “We wanted to address that head on with the first ever spoiler insurance policy, that will offer financial compensation for anyone whose day is ruined by an unwanted plot reveal.”
The gimmicky policy allows fans to request financial compensation for plots spoiled by friends, family or social media. Claims, due May 26, must be filed in 100 words or less and detail specifically how the plot of spoiled. Supporting evidence is highly encouraged — so screenshot those thoughtless tweets, news reports and Facebook declarations! Settlements of up to £100 will be awarded, Alpan says, pointing out the policy is retroactive — so if some selfish idiot crashed your “Red Wedding” way back in Season 3, you might score a payout for that, too. Claimants who can prove viewing pleasure damages also receive consolatory NOW TV streaming passes so they can binge all eight seasons of HBO’s pop culture juggernaut whenever they want. (Or perhaps just watch the upcoming prequel spinoff, now filming under the working title “Bloodmoon.”) Successful applicants will be notified by May 31.
