The much anticipated seventh season of Games of Thrones starts next week and here’s how to watch the show – legally! – without a Sky TV subscription.
HBO’s hit series is exclusive to Sky Atlantic which in turn is exclusive to Sky – the pay-TV giant doesn’t supply the channel to TalkTalk, BT or Virgin Media but it does include the channel on its popular and contract-free streaming service, Now TV.
One of the great things about Now TV is it’s accessible on tablets, mobiles, many smart TVs and various internet enabled devices such as games consoles and its own branded streaming box.
The service offers a fourteen day trial period which means you can signup on its website and start watching straight away but that’s only going to get you through the first two episodes after which you’ll have to pay £7.99 per month to see the rest.
But as well as standalone passes, Now TV sells some great value bundles which include both a set top box and a voucher for three or six months access to its entertainment channels.
Both of those prices represent a big saving on the cost of buying a monthly pass and they include a box which usually sells for £14.99 and lets you access iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5 plus YouTube and Spotify.
Even if you already have a way to watch Now TV on your big screen TV, this is a bargain way of adding it to a second or even third set in the home.
And film fans can also pick up a bundle offering 4 months access to Sky Cinema for under £25 – a whopping saving on the normal price of £9.99 per month.
If you already have a box and don’t want to fill your house with any more unused kit, there are also deals to be had on multi-month passes, including 5 months of entertainment channels for £25 – a £15 saving on the new £7.99 per month price.
