Sadly, it's that time again, and Game of Thrones is about to finish its seventh season, the shortest season yet. In case you're gonna miss it, or if you just want to relive the magic, here is how to stream the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale. Because if the world's favorite show has to wrap up another beautiful installment, everyone should at least be able to relive the dramatics as often as they possibly can.
If you were hoping for a sneaky way to stream the season finale, you're basically out of options. You'll need an HBO subscription, or a good friend with an HBO subscription, to watch the finale in real time. The HBO hackers have been having a field day this season with episodes constantly getting leaked. (And then HBO itself accidentally debuted Episode 6 early, giving many viewers the chance to learn what happens in advance.) However, no spoilers about Episode 7 have been revealed thus far.
So unless another leak occurs prior to Sunday and you decide to jump on that train, you'll have to wait and watch like everyone else. But knowing Game of Thrones, it's bound to be worth it, and with an HBO subscription, there are a few different ways that will allow viewers to watch it all unfold online with ease.
HBO Go Or HBO Now
Obviously, the easiest way to stream the finale is with HBO Go or HBO Now. HBO makes most of its prerecorded shows available on this platform within minutes of the air time. So if you find yourself without a TV but with access to a computer and internet connection, head on over to HBO Go or HBO Now to watch it all go down. And then hop back on to re-watch it as many times as necessary to fully process all that has happened and prepare your theories for the final season.
Other streaming platforms like Hulu and Sling act like online cable companies. With a subscription, you can watch not only Game of Thrones, but any channel your heart desires (as long as you've paid for the subscription, of course). If this is your cable of choice, it's a great option.
Binoculars & A Neighbor
Otherwise grab a pair of binoculars and try and watch on your neighbor's television while reading the actors' lips. Just kidding. Do not do this. It is an invasion of privacy and extremely weird and impractical — kind of like Operation Catch-a-Wight.
That's all I've got, folks. I can't wait to see what happens on Sunday, and discuss it to death with everyone I come into contact with on Monday.
