"They are a creative force and have dazzled audiences around the world with their epic narration. We look forward to seeing what your imaginations are going to bring to our members", he added.
For their part, David Benioff and DB Weiss said they have enjoyed more than a decade of "beautiful" travel on HBO and showed their enthusiasm for joining Netflix now.
"In recent months we have spent many hours talking with (Netflix managers) Cindy Holland and Peter Friedlander, as well as with Ted Sarandos and Scott Stuber. We remember the same plans of the same movies of the 80s, we love the same books, we get excited with the same narrative possibilities", they said.
"Netflix has built something amazing and unprecedented, and we are honored to be invited to join," they added.
