Is there a way I can watch Game of Thrones S6 without having Sky Atlantic?

It was such a long, long wait for the S5 dvd box release. I'm dreading the thought of Season 6 sailing by and me missing out until I can buy it on dvd. Also, having to be wary of spoilers on FB, twitter, Buzzfeed etc is such a pain in the butt.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I have Virgin Tivo XL and pay a small fortune for my monthly subs, so can't really justify paying even more for any additional channels.

Is it on now tv?

Now Tv

I agree with Now TV. We did it last year.

However DH is bitching that the picture quality wasn't good enough.
As far as I'm concerned it was fine. Could i see who people were and what was going on? Yes. For me that is good enough.

Now TV? Forgive my ignorance, but how do I get that?

I shall be watching it on our KODI MBOX.

Its similar to Netflix with no contract, you just buy a box from Currys for about 20.00 then subscribe.

Or if you have an Apple TV then you can have it as an app on that.

You don't need to buy a now tv box, we watch ours on the xbox.

Ah great, thanks for these suggestions smile

George how do you watch via the Xbox?

BombadierFritz Sat 23-Apr-16 18:34:27

You get a free trial then cancel and it usually offers you a cheap deal at the last page

It's completely legit - details on the now tv site

Ok so this is how we watch it. My dad has sky tv so I have downloaded the sky go app to our laptop (via Sky website) and I watch it via their log in details as they don't use the sky go app at all. We then connect laptop to the tv and attach speakers and it's all good to go

Miami I am going to try your suggestion. My brother is going to let me have his log-ins. Will report back.... I'm so excited grin

If you already have a v+ box from Virgin, can you also use the Now Tv box at the same time. Would really like Sky Atlantic.

GeorgeTheThird Sun 24-Apr-16 18:56:02

Yes you can. They both plug into the tv. It doesn't matter how many devices you have.

Just go to putlocker on google, they stream all the shows for free.

You don't need to get the nowtv box if you can attach a laptop to the TV (or are happy watching on a computer screen)

We have suscribed but were lulled into false optimism by the advertising that said we could use our smart TV but didn't mention until after we had paid that this was only appletv (we have a Samsung smart tv) so had an irritating time getting set up until we managed to sort out a laptop connection.

Pipbin Wed 27-Apr-16 17:03:16

Ellen, I follow someone on twitter has done just that too (unless you are the same person). One day I will watch all of it again.

Miami thanks for your suggestion... I'm now using Sky Go.
