How to watch Game of Thrones season 8 in the UK even if you don’t have a subscription to Sky Atlantic

GAME of Thrones' final is already in full swing but if you want to catch up on previous seasons you still can.

Here’s how you can binge watch the previous seven series of the TV phenomenon – and you don't even have to subscribe to Sky Atlantic…

When will Game of Thrones season 8 start and is it on Netflix?

The Game of Thrones season 8 premiered in the UK on Monday April 15 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.

It aired in the US the night before on Sunday April 14.

The first episode is also available to watch on NOW TV in the UK.

We know the final series will be the shortest in Game of Thrones' history with just six episodes, following on from the seven in season seven.

It seems very likely that each episode will be feature length but could range anywhere between 60-120 minutes in length.

Although the show may be coming to an end, the creator George R.R. Martin revealed he would have liked the show to continue for several more years.

“We could’ve gone 11, 12, 13 seasons," he told Variety. “David and Dan have been saying for like five seasons that seven seasons is all they would go. We got them to go to eight but not any more than that.

"There was a period like five years ago when they were saying seven seasons and I was saying 10 seasons and they won, they’re the ones actually working on it.”

How can I catch-up on Game Of Thrones, series 1 to 7?

There are a number of ways you can catch up on the Seven Kingdoms’ past goings on – and for some of them you don’t even need Sky.

But, when it comes to season eight, you'll have to head over to Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in the UK.


Sky makes almost all its content available over the internet on a service it calls NOW TV.

For £7.99, you can get a month’s pass.

Sky will supply you with a NOW TV box or you can stream the content through your games console or tablet if you have one.

All of Sky’s top content is available on NOW TV on the day it is broadcast which includes Sky Atlantic.

The good thing about NOW TV is that that you can unsubscribe any time you like and just pay a rolling monthly contract.

Other channels available through the service include Sky Cinema, Comedy Central and MTV.

If you only need to catch up on specific episodes, you can also by individual episodes for £2.49 each.

Google Play

Those who use Google Play can catch up on Game of Thrones season 5 at a £1.89 per episode – sadly this platform is just limited to just season 5, so you'll have to watch the other series’ elsewhere.


iTunes is offering GoT catch-up for around £14.99 per season (approx £2.49 an episode) –  or you can purchase the complete 1-6 box set for £99.99.

Is Game of Thrones Season 8 going to be the end of the show?
