This year’s VOD-fest, which ran March 31 through April 6, served up more than 5,000 episodes from 48 TV networks and more than 130 series via set-top boxes and on mobile devices running Comcast’s authenticated TV Everywhere app.

Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and The Good Wife were the three most popular shows during the Watchathon.
