How to watch Game Of Thrones series 6 if you don't have Sky

Tonight is the night that Game Of Thrones finally returns to our screens.

The season six premiere has already aired at 2am on Monday morning, simulcasted to make sure people could watch it at the same time as the US. But for those with us with jobs, the proper UK launch is at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.


People who don't have a Sky subscription might be worried that they'll miss out on all the inevitable Westeros carnage unless they stream it illegally.

Never ones to encourage law-breaking, we thought you'd remind you that there is a way of watching GoT totally legally without signing up to Sky, as long as you don't mind paying a bit for the privilege.

All you need to do is start an account with NOW TV, a free process that then entitles you to commit to a monthly package (which you can cancel any time you like).

To watch Game of Thrones, you'll want the Entertainment bundle, which covers Sky Atlantic and channels such as the Disney Channel, Comedy Central and MTV. It costs £6.99 a month, or £13.99 for three months which would effectively sort you out for the whole of season six.

Even better, once you've signed up you can watch your content on a NOW TV Box, Chromecast, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Roku, YouView, LG Smart TV, PC or Mac, Mobile, Tablet and more. Basically, you're not going to struggle.


You actually get a 14 day free trial before the service debits your account, so technically you could watch the first few episodes, decide that you're in fact sick of dragons and unexpected beheadings, and cancel before you lose any money. Just be aware that your monthly payment will keep renewing until you stop it doing so.

So there you have it, a Sky-less way to watch Game Of Thrones for the monthly cost of a few beers. Winter is coming - or at least we think it is.
