For the next two months, Game of Thrones will toy with our emotions, kill almost everyone, and be a crazy ride you don’t want to miss.

How to Watch Game of Thrones Online
Tune-in to watch Jon Snow, the Starks, and Daenerys Targaryen take on the Lannisters and the Army of the Dead. They’ll form an unlikely alliance, for a short while, before all hell breaks loose. This is how you can legally watch Game of Thrones online without dealing with Torrents or other shady activities.
- HBO GO – free with your cable subscription
- HBO Now – $15 a month (first month free)
- Amazon Prime Video – $15 a month (basically through HBO Now)
- Hulu – $15 a month to add HBO to your Hulu plan
- DirecTV Now – $50 a month but HBO is included for free
- Roku Channel – $15 a month
Most of the options listed above are free for the first month, then you pay for May and the show is over. They’re affordable, easy to access on virtually any platform or device you own, and legal. If you want to watch or stream Game of Thrones online with or without cable, these are the only ways we recommend. Keep in mind that both Sling TV and DISH removed HBO, as they got into a dispute with AT&T. So, unfortunately, people using those services are out of luck and should probably sign up for HBO Now.
Your best bet is likely HBO Now, the network’s stand-alone streaming service. HBO Now is free for the first month, then just $15 a month for the second month of the show. It’s a service and app you pay for, by itself, regardless of your carrier, internet or cable provider. Anyone can get Now, and students can try it for only $10.
Additionally, the company has HBO Go, a free streaming option for subscribers to the cable channel. If you have HBO with your home TV provider, you can sign into the HBO Go app and watch Game of Thrones anywhere and on almost every device you own. Both services give you on-demand access to HBO’s huge library of original content like Game of Thrones, movies, talk shows, comedy and more.
That’s just about everything you need to know for watching Game of Thrones online. Before you go, take a peek at this HBO Now problems and fixes post, that way if you experience a hiccup on Sunday you can fix it with ease. Enjoy the finale.
