‘Game of Thrones’ ins. to reimburse fans who can prove spoilers

Monday, 05 20 2019, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: United Kingdom
Spoilers are an insidious plague on pop culture and no one knows this better than “Game of Thrones” fans. It was only a matter of time before some enterprising mind whipped up a way to monetize it.

Endsleigh Insurance Services in the UK has announced a new “spoiler” coverage plan for “GoT” fans who’ve been subjected to unwanted 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 — hyped as the first of its kind, it’s really more of a contest — allows fans to request financial compensation.

“Whether it’s a colleague at work who has stayed up and streamed the show at 2 a.m. or a rogue news article giving away the story on social media — our spoiler cover will help provide consolation for fans who have had the ending revealed prematurely,” Alpa says.

But first you gotta prove it. Claims, due May 26, must be filed in 100 words or less and detail specifically how the plot was spoiled. Supporting evidence is highly encouraged — so screenshot those thoughtless tweets, news reports and Facebook declarations!

Settlements of up to £100 (that’s $126 and change in US currency) will be awarded, Alpan says, pointing out that 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.
