HBO’s main two streaming options

HBO Go

If you are already a HBO subscriber in form of cable or satellite TV package, you will have access to HBO Go for free. You can stream Game of Thrones along with other shows of HBO on smartphone, tablets, TVs, and gaming consoles. With watching (live streaming) new episodes as they air, you can re-watch the seven past seasons of GoT.

HBO Now

It’s no a free streaming add-on like HBO Go rather HBO Now is a standalone HBO subscription. It doesn’t require cable or satellite tv subscription. It is priced at $15 per month with which you can watch via HBO Now app or in a browser at HBONow.com.

You can run HBO Now app on a number of devices such as mobile phones, smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, etc. You can stream new/upcoming episodes on Sunday nights as well as can re-watch previous episodes.

Add HBO to a streaming service

You can add HBO to four other TV streaming services, but it will cost you additional monthly charge. If you are a Sling TV or YouTube TV subscriber, then you are obviously out of luck. But, if you have subscribed to four below mentioned services, you can enjoy watching HBO and GoT.

Hulu

You will be charged $15 per month for adding HBO to any Hulu plan. Hulu plans start at $5.99 a month. This way, your minimum Hulu cost will be $21 a month. You can’t add HBO to $10 Hulu plus Spotify plan or any other step-up Hulu plan.

Amazon Prime Video

For Amazon Prime members, adding HBO will cost $15 per month. A Prime membership alone costs $119 a year.

PlayStation Vue

The priciest plan (Ultra) of PlayStation ($80-a-month) includes HBO and Showtime. However, if you need, you can also purchase HBO as a standalone channel for $15 a month. You don’t need any other plan for it.

DirecTV Now

It includes HBO, but costs $50 a month. With increasing its price, it has also dropped a number of channels too. As a result, it has become a bad streaming deal for most of the people.
