Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.
Game of Thrones Season 8 is coming and if you’re like millions of viewers across the world you can’t wait to get stuck into this final season.
In this guide I’ll be showing you how you can stream the entire Season 8 online regardless of where you are in the world.
GoT is one of the best TV shows this century but if you don’t have access to a cable subscription or you don’t live in one of what they consider the ‘major entertainment markets’ then you may have zero access to watch Season 8.
The great news is you can watch every episode of Season 8 as soon as it premieres in the United States and below I’ll show you how.
How to watch Game of Thrones Season 8
Game of Thrones is shown by HBO in the US and it airs there first before anywhere else in the world. It’s also simultaneously cast in a few select countries at the same time it premieres on HBO in the US.
If you’re outside the US, you can use a VPN app to change your location to the US which will let you watch Game of Thrones Season 8 at the first available opportunity.
A VPN is a legal privacy app that helps you disguise your location. There are quite a few good choices but plenty of poor choices too.
For watching Game of Thrones Season 8 I recommend using ExpressVPN. They’re the fastest we’ve tested which means you’ll be able to watch in the highest quality without any buffering. A few other good options include IPVanish and NordVPN too.
You’ll need to sign up to one of the three VPN apps first.

Where can I watch Game of Thrones Season 8
Before proceeding you’ll need to use the VPN app you signed up for and connect to the ‘United States‘.
Once you’ve got a VPN and connected you’ll then need to sign up for HBO Now.
It’s HBO’s online streaming service for those that don’t have a cable subscription. They offer a free 7-day trial and after that, it’s just $14.99 /mo if you decide to keep it.
Upon sign up you’ll need to enter some credit card details just to activate the account and enter a US Zip Code. You can use any, a few good examples are ‘90210’, ‘10001’, ‘33109’ and ‘78701’.
Once you’ve completed sign-up, you can stream Game of Thrones Season 8 anywhere in the world. Make sure you stay connected to the VPN app; otherwise you’ll be blocked from streaming.
I can’t sign up for HBO Now
If you struggle to sign up to HBO Now then your other option is to use Hulu.
Hulu is another American subscription service that includes HBO as part of their online streaming package.
For this you’ll need to sign up for ExpressVPN as detailed above, download their app and again connect to the United States.
Once you’re connected you can sign up for a free trial of Hulu.
Now you’re signed up you’ll be able to watch Game of Thrones Season 8 wherever you are in the world.
Again, like with HBO Now, you’ll also need to stay connected to the VPN app.

How many episodes will Season 8 have?
Season 8 of Game of Thrones is going to be one of the shortest seasons in Game of Thrones history.
In fact there will be just six episodes in Season 8.
Game of Thrones fans don’t need to panic though because of such a short season because while the season may be short in terms of episodes, the actual episodes themselves are some of the longest we’ve seen.
When is Season 9 going to be shown?
If you’re a massive Game of Thrones fan then you’ll already be itching to watch Season 8 eagerly waiting for the next season.
Sadly, Season 8 will be the final ever season of Game of Thrones and after that, there will be no more.
Don’t worry too much though because while not near, expect to see a few spin-off series in the Game of Thrones style in the coming years.
I’m sure Season 8 won’t be the last we’ll see of the GoT brand.
Summary: How to watch Game of Thrones Season 8
If you don’t have cable or Game of Thrones isn’t shown in your country then don’t worry.
You can sign up from a VPN app from ExpressVPN that will let you watch on the US online streaming services HBO Now or Hulu.
