Maybe you're super excited for the Game of Thrones series finale. Maybe you're not excited about it anymore! Either way, chances are you're going to tune in to find out exactly how it all ends in Westeros. Will Daenerys Targaryen actually ascend to the Iron Throne? Will Jon Snow stand by her side? Who else is Arya Stark going to kill before the final credits roll? Those are all big questions that need answers, and they're going to happen in Episode 6 of the final season.
So knowing you're going to watch the episode, the next question is, how? The obvious answer is, of course, live on HBO the second it airs. But maybe you're one of those people who has gone all eight seasons of Game of Thrones without actually securing an HBO subscription...but now you want to tune into the finale. Here's how you can watch the final episode and start preparing for it to all go down on Sunday.
Watch it on HBO
The easiest way to access the episode without fear of any sort of app crashing or buffering is to just watch it on HBO. You can do that with an HBO subscription.
Watch it on HBO Go
If you have an HBO account you have access to the HBO Go app. Obviously, you need an HBO subscription for this. However, if you have a friend (or a parent) who subscribes to HBO, a good thing to do would be to kindly ask for their username and password to access the HBO Go.
Watch it on HBO Now
If you don't want to shell out of a full HBO subscription, you can snag its stand-alone streaming app, HBO Now, for $15 a month.
Watch it on Amazon Prime Video
Just like with Hulu, you can add in HBO to your Amazon Prime Service to stream and access episodes live. While Amazon Prime is a flat-rate fee for a year, HBO is $15 a month.
Watch it on PlayStation Vue
If you're looking to just purchase HBO, you can do so via PlayStation's streaming service for $15 a month. You don't need to buy any other sort of PlayStaiton Vue subscription to access it.
Watch it on DirectTV Now
DirectTV Now currently includes HBO in its channel packages, and it ranges anywhere from $40 to $50 a month depending on what option you purchase.
The Game of Thrones series finale airs May 19 at 9/8c.
