SIGN UP FOR OUR SPECIAL WEEKLY GAME OF THRONES NEWSLETTER TO SHARE IN ALL THE ACTION FROM THE FINAL SEASON
With a whopping seven seasons to catch up on — for both fans of the show who want a quick refresher and late arrivals desperate to join the bandwagon — there are many different ways you can get your fix.
Game of Thrones is exclusive to Foxtel, the only streaming platform that has all seven seasons and will air the final season.
Here is how you can view it.
ON YOUR COMPUTER
To stream Game of Thrones, you’ll want to use Foxtel Now (from $25 per month). It comes as part of the Pop package. Every episode from seasons 1-7 is available in the On Demand library, and you can also watch the new season live through this service. Foxtel Now can be purchased within minutes and used immediately on your own device including laptops, tablets and smartphones.
ON YOUR TV
Prefer to watch, record and replay all the action from your nice big TV at home? You will need to sign up to a Foxtel residential subscription. This means a technician will arrive and set you up with an iQ4 set top box. You will be able to watch the new episodes live with the rest of the world or record them and watch them later. This subscription also gives you access to Foxtel GO, Foxtel’s mobile streaming service. If you want to go for this option, start planning now as it takes up to three business days for the box to arrive.
ON YOUR PHONE OR SMALL DEVICE
If you’re busy out and about but want to binge, or perhaps you want to watch the new season live during a sneaky break at work, Foxtel GO is for you. It’s a feature that automatically comes with a Foxtel residential subscription.
Foxtel packages that include Game of Thrones range from $25 a month to $49 a month, however you can customise packages to suit you.
You don’t want FOMO come April 15. Trust us.
