Another good sign for upcoming season of HBO’s Game of Thrones: Sales of the first season DVD set are going through the roof.

HBO has moved about 350,000 units in the first week since the show’s March 6 release. That’s the biggest first-seven-day tally for any TV series title in the network’s history — including  popular shows like The Sopranos, Sex and the City and True Blood.

With the Thrones second season trailer also setting network records, the fantasy drama seems poised to return to higher ratings than ever when it premieres April 1.
