Popular fantasy-drama TV series Game of Thrones is back with its seventh instalment (aka Season 7), which will be aired on HBO at 9 pm ET on July 16. It will be the penultimate season premiering on Sunday in the US and the excitement among fans will be sky-high in anticipation of watching this biggest TV series across the globe.
Now, the biggest question among worldwide viewers is how to watch the GoT Season 7 without a cable subscription, legally, and that too for free. Assuming that you either don't own a cable subscription or missed the premiere being telecast on Sunday, here is what you could do.
Just subscribe to HBO NOW, which allows you to watch HBO shows and programmes anytime and anywhere using an app or channel on your favourite smartphone, computer, tablet, Android TV, Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV.
