How to Watch the Final Season of ‘Game of Thrones’
It's finally here! On Sundays, there is only one place that you’re going to want to be—and that’s parked in front of a screen to take in the final (sob) season of Game of Thrones. Here’s everything you need to know for the ultimate viewing experience.
When Will the New 'Game of Thrones' Episodes Air?
Cancel your weekend plans. Game of Thrones will air every Sunday night for six weeks in a row starting on April 14. Each episode will vary in length but make sure the popcorn’s ready for a prompt 9 p.m. ET (Eastern Standard Time in the United States) start.
How long will you have to put off your bedtime? According to the GoT schedule, the premiere will span 54 glorious minutes and the second episode will be a tad longer at 58 minutes. But after waiting this long for Daenerys to seize the throne (maybe), we’re willing to endure a few dark circles on Monday morning.
How to watch 'Game of Thrones' live
If you haven’t done it already, add HBO to your TV package and stream each episode live on the HBO Go website or app. (Psst… if someone in your family or friend group has this add-on and you don’t, you can totally use their login—thanks, Dad.)
Cut the cable cord? For $15 per month, users can get HBO Now, the network’s stand-alone streaming service that will give you access to the network’s entire catalogue on the website or app.
How to watch 'Game of Thrones' if you don't have HBO
If you have a Hulu or Amazon Prime account, then all you need to do is add HBO to your subscription for an additional $15.
Not ready for the commitment? Sign up for either service for a free trial and see how you like it. Both providers will let you test out their offerings for a full week (meaning you can catch the GoT premiere before deciding if you want to continue).
Bring it on.
