What should be my plan for NEW episodes next month!!!!!!, now that I've cancelled Sky?

Buy each episode on iTunes? Buy a pass for Now TV?

If I buy each episode on iTunes, are they released simultaneously as live broadcast (i.e.. at 2am on a Monday morning?)

My mum got a now box just to watch them

This is one of the reasons I won't let dh cancel sky grin

We've scaled the package to as basic as possible so it's a lot cheaper

Where I live, I've no other option if I don't have Sky. It's a pain tbh but hey ho.

Oh and I believe it's not starting till July this year.

It's not on until July, but I'll be signing up for Now TV for 2 months whilst it's on.

New episodes next month?

I though the next series wasn't arriving until the summer.

Cross-posted with not just one person but two!

You CANCELLED Sky?!?! Nooooooo!! You have my sympathies sob sob sob.....

WestleyAndButtockUp Sun 19-Mar-17 09:03:39

July? Bollocks.

It's not starting till July - but we stream it illegally from one of the very many sites that get it up as soon as it shows in the US. Not always great quality but good enough.

PaperdollCartoon Sun 19-Mar-17 09:04:25

NowTV is a good idea though!

I subscribed to Now tv for the sole purpose of watching GoT last year. I didn't get round to cancelling my subscription as I found other things to watch once the last series ended. Really looking forward to the new series. grin

How long is minimum subscription to NowTV?

ActuallyThatsSUPREMECommander Sun 19-Mar-17 09:11:53

Minimum subscription is one month. Last year they only kept each episode up for a month I think, so you couldn't just hold on until it was almost finished then binge (and half the fun is watching it on the day unspoiled anyway). But you should be able to get a 1 month free trial, and if you threaten to quit after your first paid month they might offer you a half price deal to stay. I think this series is only seven episodes sad but it keeps it down to a 2 month subscription.

Now tv. Instead of monthly subscribing you can buy a scratch card to give you 3 or 6 months. I get mine from amazon.

So iTunes isn't an option for new weekly episodes? Do they only go on iTunes a while after first broadcast?

Get now tv free trial. Go to cancel, they will offer you three months for like £2.99pm.
