But here’s how you can watch Game of Thrones Season 7 online legally.
You won’t be able to stream the show on Netflix, thanks to the fierce competition between HBO and Netflix. Fortunately, HBO has made it incredibly easy to watch its original programming online or on an Apple TV. Now you can stream Game of Thrones and other HBO exclusives on your computer, iPhone, iPad, and other app-ready devices.
Right now, the best way to watch Game of Thrones Season 7 (as well as the older seasons, if you want) online is through HBO Now and HBO Go. There are a few other platforms as well where you can enjoy it, but let’s first look at the two services from HBO.
Watch Game of Thrones on HBO Go
HBO Go is a free online streaming option that comes with your paid TV cable package. If you have a cable connection and have HBO as part of your plan, you can access HBO Go online or through mobile apps without paying a dime. The service was launched to let HBO subscribers watch its programming from any device, anywhere.
Each new Game of Thrones episode will become available on HBO Go as soon as it airs. First, you’ll have to download and install the HBO Go app or visit the website. And then log in using your satellite or cable subscription details. You’ll have to select your provider and enter the username and password. Besides Game of Thrones, you’ll also have access to HBO’s vast library of TV shows and movies.
Watching Game of Thrones Season 7 on HBO Now
HBO Now is a standalone streaming service, just like Netflix. It has no connection to your cable TV provider. Since it’s a standalone service, HBO Now requires a monthly subscription fee of $14.99. You’ll have to download the app or visit the website to register for an account. After you have registered, you’ll have the same benefits as HBO Go. The streaming service is a blessing for people who have ditched cable.
Fortunately, HBO Now offers a one-month free trial for new subscribers. One episode of the Season 7 has already aired. If you sign up for the free trial right before the second episode airs, you’ll be able to watch the 4-5 episodes of the seventh Season for free. Some people who have two or more email addresses can sign up using one email during the first month, and sign up again using the second email when the first free trial ends.
HBO Now is your best option to watch Game of Thrones if you want to stay away from cable TV and cable alternatives such as Sling TV.
Other ways to watch it online
If you are a Hulu or Amazon Prime user, you can also watch Game of Thrones. They both have signed deals with HBO to get to stream its shows on their platforms. However, you’ll have to shell out the standard $14.99 per month to make HBO an Add-On within Hulu or Amazon Prime. It means you’ll be paying HBO Now’s subscription fee on top of Hulu/Amazon Prime’s.
Hulu itself costs $7.99 per month with ads. If you want an ad-free experience, you’ll have to pay $11.99 per month. Amazon Prime costs $99/year or $9 per month, but it includes many other e-commerce related perks as well.
