Missing Game of Thrones? You're not alone. A few weeks on from the end and all we want to do is watch Game of Thrones online. Luckily, no matter where you are, there is still time to catch the entirety of season 8 - whether you've already watched it or have only just got around to starting it.
Whether you're just starting season 8, gearing up for the epic finale or even half-way through season 3 (come on, the shows been out for years!) we can tell you there is a lot of drama to come. Considering just how much the creators of the show have (controversially) crammed into one season, it does seem like the action never really stops.
Plus, with a Game of Thrones prequel on the way in 2020, it's still well worth catching up on all that action before it airs next year.

Watch Game of Thrones online: stream outside your country
Want to watch Game of Thrones online in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or India? We've found all of your best options and listed them below.
But, if you find yourself in the unfortunate circumstances where you've booked a holiday now when you want to watch it, then things get a bit more difficult. For those unlucky fans, all hope isn't lost yet. You will find that watching Game of Thrones won't be an option thanks to geo-blocking. This means that broadcasters do tend to try and stop you from watching in other countries, putting up some virtual roadblocks.
Don't fret, you'll still be able to watch the show, it just gets a little bit harder. By using a VPN, you will still be able to catch the show by changing your IP address to a location back where you live, allowing you to watch it all (assuming that doesn't breach any TS&Cs, of course).

Watch Game of Thrones online in the USA
Well there really is no surprise here, if you're in the US then HBO will be the go-to place for everything Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, it is also no surprise that this means you will have to sign up to a HBO subscription to watch the show.

Not to mention, HBO offers free trials on all of its packages, which helps soften the blow. Prices start at $14.99 a month with HBO and go up depending on which package you choose.
