Game of Thrones

Hiya!
We have NOW TV.

I want to see if I can get a cheaper TV/Broadband bundle elsewhere but the only thing stopping me is the new series of Game of Thrones.

Is there any other way to get Game of Thrones other than on Sky Atlantic?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes buy the boxsets or rent them via a dvd rental service.
  • What could be cheaper than a Nowtv pass?

    Many other ways (just not entirely legal).

    Be careful if you buy the box sets off of the 'bay though!

    I bought series 1 to 5 from various sellers and only No. 1 was legit!! .... the others were all fakes ... very good ones mind you but still fakes!

    OP, you can get Now TV independently of your BB supplier. Get a cheaper switch sorted, buy a Now TV box or see if you have a device that can access Now TV, sign up for the Now TV service for a month (Atlantic is part of the entertainment package) which is usually about £7, before the month runs out, go on to the Now TV website and go to cancel your pass, after about 3 asks of "are you sure you want to cancel", you'll get a special offer which is usually 3 or 4 months half price. GoT is due in April, so 4 months should cover the whole series.

    Buy a 2 month Entertainment Pass from Argos or Currys.

    Cancel before the two months is up.

    My renewals have been 3 months @ £2.64 a month, then 4 months @£3.49 a month, so total £31.88 (an average of £3.54 a month) for 9 months, an absolute bargain.

    Alternate between Now TV and Netflix - you don't need both at the same time. And if you don't mind watching catch up TV only and giving up the BBC, then you don't need a TV license (you can'y use iPlayer though).

    Debuts on 14/04/19 (a Sunday) and with just 6 episodes ( :( ) the final ever episode will be on 19/05/19.
