The Season 7 of Game of Thrones premiered on HBO on July 16, 2017, which means that we’ll soon get to see what’s going to happen next in one of the most popular and best-rated TV shows in history. An event like this is something you don’t want to miss, and it’s definitely something you mustn’t let others spoil for you.
But what if you don’t have a cable subscription? How can you watch the latest season of Game of Thrones live, preferably on your Android device? We have several fantastic ways how you can not only watch Game of Thrones on a budget but also for free by taking advantage of free trials.
- One-month free trial
- $14.99 after
Operated by American premium cable and satellite television network HBO, HBO Now is a subscription video on demand service that allows subscribers on-demand access to HBO’s library of programs, films, and other content. It costs $14.99 a month, and there’s a one-month free trial that you can take advantage of to try it for free.
HBO Now subscribers can comfortably watch the Season 7 of Game of Thrones using the HBO Now Android app. While the app has had a rocky start on Play Store, HBO Now is working hard on making it better, releasing updates on a regular basis. With the free trial available on the official website, there’s no reason not to give it a go and watch Game of Thrones streamed directly from the show’s creators.
- 7-day free trial
- $14.99 after.
Amazon’s paid subscription service, Amazon Prime, is known for its two-day shipping, unlimited photo storage, rewards, a gigantic library of video and audio content, books, and magazines, just to name a few things. The service costs $10.99 a month, and if you’re an Amazon customer, the chances are that you’re already also a Prime subscriber.
In that case, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial of a new HBO add-on for Amazon Prime. After the trial, the add-on costs $14.99 a month. It’s compatible with Amazon Fire TV devices, Fire tablets, many Android devices, select iOS devices, and the Amazon Video website, giving you plenty of options how to enjoy Game of Thrones Season 7.
- 7-day free trial
- $20 for Sling TV subscription and $15 HBO add-on after the free trial
Sling TV is known for their unbeatable channel bungles that start at just $20 a month for the Sling Orange package. Included in the package are such popular channels as ESPN, Comedy Central, CNN, Disney Channel, and many others—but not HBO. To get HBO as a Sling TV subscriber, you must pay $15 for the HBO add-on. You can add the add-on to your account by signing into your Sling account and clicking on the Change subscription option. Then, select the HBO add-on and submit your order.
If you rather not pay for Sling TV before trying how it works, you can sign up for a 7-day free trial. Just make sure to cancel before it expires if you decide that Sling TV isn’t the best choice for you.
- 7-day free trial (30-day trial also available with some offers)
- $35 a month after trial plus $5 addon for HBO. AT&T wireless customers can get DirecTV Now at a discounted $10 a month
DirecTV Now is a subscription streaming television service offered by AT&T. The service works on TV boxes, smartphones and tablets, as well as computers. It normally costs $35 a month after the 7-day free trial, but AT&T has recently started offering DirecTV Now for just $10 as an optional extra for customers who pay for the Unlimited Choice data plan.
If you’re an AT&T wireless customer, an offer like that is hard to beat. HBO is available as an add-on for just $5. You can activate it by selecting the Manage My Plan option located under User Account in Settings.
- One-month free trial for Hulu
- $14.99 for the HBO add-on
Hulu’s over-the-top IPTV service with live programming from broadcast and cable brands, Hulu Live TV, costs $39.99 a month, and it includes over 50 channels, unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library, and 50 hours of cloud DVR. What it doesn’t include, however, is access to HBO. To watch HBO, Hulu subscribers must pay $14.99 a month
To kick off the premiere of Game of Thrones, Hulu is now offering a one-month free trial of their premium HBO add-on. This is a great opportunity for all Hulu subscribers to watch a few episodes for free and decide whether the add-on is worth the price.
Alternatively, you can also watch Game of Thrones on Kodi, although we don’t recommend going this route. Kodi is a free and open-source media player software application that allows users to stream video content from online repositories. These repositories are maintained by community members, and their legal status usually ranges from questionable to illegal.
Some people prefer Kodi over more legitimate sources because of how simple it is to set up and use:
- Download Kodi from the official website and install it on any compatible device.
- Go to Settings > System Settings > Expert Mode > and Addons.
- There, allow Unknown Sources.
- Go back to the main Settings screen and click on File Manager and Add Source.
- Select None and enter the following URL: https://mediarepos.net/kodistuff
- Name it “kodistuff” and confirm.
- Go back to the Home screen and go to Add-ons.
- Click on the Package Installer icon.
- Select “Install from Zip file.”
- Select kodistuff.
- Select “smash-x-x-x.zip” and confirm.
- Select the Install from repository option.
- Click on Video Add-ons and select Exodus.
- Go back to the Home screen and select Exodus from the Add-ons tab.
- Go to TV Shows and search for Game of Thrones.
You should have no problem finding the latest episode of Game of Thrones very soon after its premier. Don’t be surprised, however, when you receive an unpleasant letter from your ISP. As we’ve warned you, watching Game of Thrones on Kodi is frowned upon, to say the least.
