HBO’s Game of Thrones, love it or hate it, is the biggest thing on TV right now, and sadly, it is coming to an end next week. With only two episodes remaining, the first of which airs tonight, many people want to watch how it ends, even if they’ve never watched an episode. And starting today, you can do so absolutely free with the HBO Now online service.
Game of Thrones has run for eight seasons on HBO, and follows the book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. The eighth and final season was delayed a year, and then came back with only six extended-length episodes. Tonight’s episode promises to be epic, with another huge battle to determine who wins the Iron Throne, and then next week will wrap up the series.
The best way to watch the last two episodes of Game of Thrones is to do it for free, and here’s how you can watch them without a subscription. The online-only version of HBO is called HBO Now, and you can sign up to watch all of HBO’s amazing programming without a cable or satellite package. HBO Now offers a free 7-day trial, so if you sign up for it today, you can watch both episodes of the end of Game of Thrones absolutely free.
You will need to sign up with a credit card, but if you cancel before the end of the 7-day trial, you will not be charged the $14.99 monthly fee. Doing so will allow you to watch tonight’s and next week’s Game of Thrones episode and it will not cost you a thing. Now, there’s plenty of great movies and shows on HBO that can be accessed through the HBO Now service, including the hilarious and critically acclaimed Veep and the upcoming series based on DC Comics’ Watchmen, so if you choose to keep your subscription, you won’t be disappointed.
Regardless if you keep it or not, this is how you can watch the final two episodes of Game of Thrones for free, starting tonight.
