HBO's top two streaming options
If you are already a subscriber to HBO as part of a cable or satellite TV package, you get HBO Go for free. It lets you stream the Game of Thrones along with the rest of HBO's applications on phones, tablets, connected TVs and game consoles. Not only can you watch all seven transit times of GoT with HBO Go, but you can live the new episodes when flying on HBO.
Unlike the free streaming add-on mentioned above, HBO Now is a stand-alone subscription to HBO – no cable or satellite TV subscription is required.
It costs $ 15 a month and lets you watch HBO via the HBO Now app or in a web browser at HBONow.com. The HBO Now app is available on a number of devices, including mobile devices, smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku. As with HBO Go, you can steam the new episodes live on Sunday evenings while flying on HBO.
