Game of Thrones is one of the most popular tv shows of the last few years, and we can see why - it's pretty incredible. If you want to watch game of thrones online (up to and including season 8!) then here are a few of the best options (we checked these as recently as July 2019):
Amazon Prime Video (no need to pay)
All seasons of GOT, including season 8, are available on Amazon Video and you can sign up for a free 7 day trial with Amazon Prime HBO completely free in 10 seconds and have access to it immediately, without paying anything ever!
Just cancel before the trial ends and you won't pay anything, simple as that! The good thing about using Amazon Prime Video to watch Game of Thrones is that it is very easy to cancel the free trial, plus the series is available in awesome HD, and the free trial includes the incredible documentary about the series (The Last Watch), so you really get a lot more than you would if you were to stream the show illegally. Plus, most importantly, you're supporting the show and all of the crew who worked on it by watching the series through this legal method!
Still not sure how to watch Game of Thrones using this method?
Hey, that's no problem. I love explaining stuff like this. Here is the step by step process:
- Head to the Game of Thrones page over on Amazon Prime Video and click on the yellow button that says 'Watch with HBO' a show in the image above
- You'll be taken to this page:
- Again, hit the yellow button.
- Next up you'll be taken to another page where you'll just have to confirm your details, and then that's it! You'll now be able to Game of Thrones online free in awesome quality! Just make sure you cancel before the free trials are over and you won't pay anything!
NowTV trial + VPN trial
Yep, you folks in the UK can also watch Game of Thrones online (season 1 - 8) without paying anything, by taking advantage of the NOWTV free trial, but also anyone using a free VPN could also access this trial by setting their location to UK.
Just click the yellow button and you'll be able to start a free 7 day trial (enough time to watch the entirety of Game of Thrones - do it over a week and you'll manage it!). The good thing about the NOWTV trial is that you can cancel before it's up and not pay anything. I think NOWTV is a great service, but if all you're wanting to do is watch Game of Thrones online in great quality without paying anything, then this is a great option for anybody based in the UK (or people based in the USA who are using a VPN).
Hulu is a streaming service and does have Game of Thrones on there - plus, they do have a free trial. However, I've always thought the free trial was quite difficult to cancel. That's my opinion on Hulu in general, I do recommend it for some tv shows and movies but wouldn't personally recommend it for Game of Thrones.
HBO Now trial + VPN trial
HBO Now has al the episodes of Game of Thrones available to stream with a free trial. If you're based in the USA you should be fine to access it, if you're outside the USA you will want to try the following:
- First, get yourself a free VPN. Head to ExpressVPN, and get 30 days free. You can cancel before the 30 days is up and get your money back. Set your location to USA.
- Next, head to the Game of Thrones page on HBO Now and start watching the episodes. Again, you'll need to make sure that your location is set to USA with ExpressVPN for this to work.
- Cancel the VPN free trial before the 30 days is over and you won't get charged for watching Game of Thrones online! (I'd always recommend you keep the VPN because it's so cheap and opens up so many options for streaming, especially if you want to continue watching Game of Thrones, but if you don't want to then it's up you)
