Watch Game of Thrones

How can I watch Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones is a cultural phenomenon. It's the most-watched programme across the world — and the most-pirated, too. In the UK, you have several options to watch Game of Thrones legally, even if you don't have Sky.

Massively popular fantasy series Game of Thrones is truly epic television. While you can wait until the season’s over to buy the entire series and binge it, if you want to avoid spoilers and keep up in conversations with friends and coworkers, you’ve got to watch it live.

Game of Thrones without Sky

If you're happy with your current provider but want to watch Game of Thrones, Sky does offer access to Sky Atlantic to its streaming service, NOW TV.

NOW TV can be streamed online through laptops, games consoles, smartphones, tablets, and some set-top boxes and smart TVs. Sky Atlantic is available on NOW TV's Entertainment Pass, which you can purchase on a monthly basis and are free to cancel at any time.

So if you’re only after Game of Thrones, you can get away with buying an Entertainment pass for two months and then canceling your pass come September.

If you have the NOW TV Entertainment pass, you can watch Sky Atlantic live through certain devices or view it on-demand after the UK premiere date.

Watching Game of Thrones on Sky
