After 8 years and 73 episodes, we finally arrived at the end of Game of Thrones, exhausted and defeated. There was disappointment, memes, rage and fire. There was joy. When it was all said and done… we had a lot of thoughts.

Although the show is over, there's still one more week of Thrones content to inject into our Song of Ice and Fire-hungry eyeballs. “The Last Watch” goes behind the scenes on the final season and airs in the Game of Thrones slot on HBO tonight. If you're playing catch up, you can watch the super sweet trailer here

If you're keen to see what happened off camera to bring us the final six episodes, you'll need a way to watch HBO. Thankfully there are plenty of easy ways to subscribe, even if you don't have cable, starting with HBO Now and HBO Go. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the services featured on this page.

<h2>    HBO's main two streaming options </h2><div class="shortcode listicle " section="listicle" readability="13.530927835052">
        <h2>HBO Go</h2>


If you're already a subscriber to HBO as part of a cable or satellite TV package, you get HBO Go for free. It lets you stream Game of Thrones along with the rest of HBO's shows on supported phones, tablets, connected TVs and gaming consoles. Not only can you watch all seven past seasons of GoT with HBO Go, but you can livestream the new episodes as they air on HBO.

        <h2>HBO Now</h2>


As opposed to the free streaming add-on mentioned above, HBO Now is a standalone subscription to HBO -- no cable or satellite TV subscription required. 

It costs $15 a month and lets you watch HBO via the HBO Now app or in a 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 nights, the same time that they air on HBO.

Add HBO to a streaming service

You can add HBO to four of the TV streaming services below for an additional monthly charge. If you're a GoT fan and also a subscriber to Sling TV or YouTube TV, then I'm sorry to report that you're out of luck: neither service offers HBO. Here are four that do.

Amazon Prime Video

Prime members can add HBO for $15 a month. A Prime membership costs $119 a year.

Game of Thrones in the UK, Australia and elsewhere

Game of Thrones, according to HBO, airs in all but four countries around the world — but not necessarily on HBO itself. In the UK, for example, HBO shows are on Sky Atlantic and Sky's online services Sky Go and Now TV. In Australia, Game of Thrones airs on TV and online on Foxtel. In both countries the show airs at the same time as in the US (i.e., early Monday), and is repeated on Monday night.

And for the record, HBO restricts the use of VPNs used to stream any of the above services from outside the US.
