How Can I Watch Game of Thrones Season 7 Online?

GoT Season 7 officially premieres at 9:00 PM EST on Sunday 16 July. Unfortunately for GoT fans outside of the US, the first episode will only be available starting Monday 17 July.

Want to watch GoT: Season 7 online, from anywhere in the world, as soon as it comes out on Sunday? Let me show you how easy it is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) with a streaming service in order to watch Game of Thrones!

Watch Game of Thrones Season 7: Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Choose from our best VPN services list, or sign up to my personal favorite, ExpressVPN.
  2. Install the VPN software on your internet-connected device (double check with the VPN first to make sure your device is supported!)
  3. Choose from one of the Game of Thrones viewing options below and sign up.
  4. Connect to a VPN server in the US (UK if you need Sky Go or NOW TV unblocked, or Australia for Foxtel). Try to get a server that is closest to your actual geographic location. Finding a close server will help negate speed loss.
  5. Once connected, go to the streaming service you’ve selected. It should now be unblocked!
  6. All done? Then you are all set to start streaming Game of Thrones Season 7!

Game of Thrones Season 7: Viewing Options


Game of Thrones is an HBO-owned show. Thus the best bet for streaming GoT without any issues is directly through HBO’s cable TV broadcast.

The catch is that you will need a cable TV subscription with a valid HBO package in order to watch Game of Thrones. Keep scrolling to see more ways to watch – without a cable subscription!


HBO Go is HBO’s global streaming service. It allows fans all over the world to enjoy HBO shows and movies, including Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, the GoT Season 7 premiere will only be available on Sunday night to viewers in the US.

Do you have HBO Go but can’t watch the season premiere because you are outside the US? Use a VPN to unblock HBO Go from anywhere in the world!

HBO Now – Free one-month trial!

The best option to watch GoT as soon as it is available is HBO Now, the standalone streaming arm of HBO Go. HBO Now is available for Apple TV, Android, iOS, and Roku devices. It can also be streamed from your desktop.

Much like HBO Go, HBO Now is only available to US residents. Those outside of the US who want to watch the season 7 premiere on 16 July will need to use a VPN to unblock US HBO Now.

The awesome news here is that HBO Now has a one-month free trial. This will allow you to watch a nice chunk of HBO and GoT without spending a dime!

Sky Go and NOW TV – for UK viewers

Game of Thrones fans in the UK who are happy to wait an extra day are best served by either Sky Go or NowTV. Both services are available for a wide range of devices. They will let you watch Game of Thrones online with a 14-day free trial, thus covering you for at least a couple of episodes.

Do you have Sky Go or NOW TV but are currently outside of the UK? Use a VPN to unblock these services and enjoy Game of Thrones Season 7!

Foxtel Now – Free two-week trial!

Foxtel, the Australian subsidiary of Fox Entertainment Group, will also be streaming Game of Thrones Season 7. The start time will be the same as the US (11:00 AM on Monday 17 July, Australian Eastern Standard Time) thanks to beneficial time-zone differences.

Foxtel is currently offering a free two-week trial of Foxtel Now. To sign up, you will have to provide your credit card details. However, you won’t be charged during the trial period.

Of course, the catch is that Foxtel Now also requires a VPN to access the service outside of Australia.

Watch Game of Thrones Seasons 1-6 Online

If you’re hoping to catch up with previous seasons of GoT before the new season comes along, there a couple of ways to make sure you are caught up with everything happening in Westeros.

HBO has the complete series available for streaming on HBO GO and HBO Now. Follow my instructions above to unblock these streaming services from anywhere in the world!

NOW TV has also added box sets of GoT seasons 1-6 to its catalog. To watch these episodes, simply subscribe to the Entertainment package, which costs £6.99 per month. There’s also a 14-day free trial so you can cram in a ton of GoT for free!

As a NOW TV subscriber, you also get full access to Sky. That means you’ll be able to watch season 7 as it’s broadcast at no extra cost.

    1. Hi OIH,

      This article is aimed those who want to watch content at least somewhat legally. Those with less scruples should also note that the latest episodes of GoT are also available on The Pirate Bay.

    1. @stacy anderson, the torrent’s already out. in fact, there was a news on ivacy blog just a few hours after the show aired. it’s prolly on kodi too now. though thanks to ed sheeran, the fans are now bashing sheeran instead of discussing the episode 😀
