With Game of Thrones Season 8 now over, and HBO’s fantasy epic wrapped up, fans craving a rewatch and newcomers looking to catch up have just one question: where can I watch Game of Thrones online in the UK? The good news? You can stream it without Sky. Legally.
HBO has increasingly embraced digital distribution for the show, releasing Season 3 in summer 2013 on blinkbox (now TalkTalk TV Store) just after it finished its run on Sky Atlantic – almost a year ahead of its debut on DVD and Blu-ray. Deals with Google Play, Amazon Instant Video and Rakuten TV have since followed for all seven seasons, giving fans more places to download the programme and catch up on the latest episodes. The availability of Game of Thrones online legally is a significant step for HBO, given the programme’s long-standing reputation as one of the most pirated shows of all time, with even iTunes offering the show to download.
But what about when the show’s actually on air? There’s good news about that, too: ever since 2014, Game of Thrones is available online legally for non-Sky customers at the same time as its TV broadcast. Subscription VOD service NOW TV allows users to watch Sky Atlantic live online, as well as catch up with episodes after broadcast, all without a Sky contract. The VOD service costs £7.99 a month for an Entertainment Pass, which gives you streaming access to Sky’s TV channels, such as Sky 1 (home of Arrow and The Flash) and FOX (home of The Walking Dead), as well as Sky Atlantic (home of Westworld and The Affair). Sky customers, meanwhile, are able to watch episodes live online through Sky Go – and catch up after broadcast with Sky On Demand.
Season 8, though, disappears from Sky – and NOW TV – on 18th June 2019. Looking for something more long-term? You can also buy and download the whole of Season 1 to 8 as a box set on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes and more – including, with Season 8, the feature-length documentary, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch. Here’s a full guide to where you can you watch Game of Thrones online:
