Watch Game of Thrones Finale on Kodi from Anywhere in the World
As before, Game of Thrones will air exclusively on HBO on May 19, 2019 at 9 PM Eastern Time. HBO is the only place where you can watch Game of Thrones live online in the United States. Similar to HBO in the United States, Now TV is the sole service delivering latest episodes of Game of Thrones in Australia.
There’s good news. If you live in the United States and have an active subscription of HBO cable channel then you need not pay for HBO Now digital streaming service. HBO Go is the alternative which is free for subscribers of HBO cable channel. In this case, you would want to use HBO Go instead of HBO Now.
