During the summer months, the amount of prime time television I take in goes down drastically. That’s because we see an end to fall television series. However, there is one show that keeps me happy, even if it is only one night a week. That show is Game of Thrones, and if it’s summer, and I haven’t seen the latest episode, it’s because I literally had no time. I also should mention that I don’t have cable. Instead, I stream all of my entertainment, or intertainment if you’ve read my other posts. That means I have to watch Game of Thrones without cable.
Luckily, there are ways that allow me to watch Game of Thrones legally without cable.
HBO Now is an app made by HBO that allows you to stream any of their programs and movies for a monthly fee. This way is not how I do it, but is one of the easiest ways to watch. Once you have a subscription, you can watch on your phone, computer, Amazon Fire Stick, Roku, Chromecast or any smart TV or gaming console.
Pay Per Play
As a kid, Pay Per View was the only way to rent and watch movies from your television besides heading to Blockbuster. Remember Blockbuster? I would ride my bike there, rent a movie, buy some candy and a soda then ride home and watch the movie. It was cool because it was a way to argue when I was told to get outside and get some sun. “I already rode my bike to Blockbuster! That’s enough sun for now.” Back to the reason we’re here, now we have iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play Movies & TV. Through those services, you can rent or buy an episode of Game of Thrones and then stream the way you always do (refer to the second half of the above entry).
