Game of Thrones Season 7 Begins Now!

I hesitated to post what time #GameOfThrones #GoTs7 would be online because there was some confusion about if its launch at “9pm EST” would be at the same time, 6pm Pacific, or if they would wait until 9 Pacific. Well it was 6pm PST and you can watch the first episode now!Game of Thrones Season 7 on HBO Go

If you don’t have HBO or a friend’s login for HBO Go (our Fire TV with the HBO Go app is pictured above), you can sign up for a free trial and get to binge-watching before it expires – though you’ll have to wait for all the episodes to be out.

 Season 7 of Game of Thrones with HBO Free Trial

The only other options are to order HBO through your TV provider, or to find a friend with a subscription and verify their account with a code on your TV. As cordcutters, we strongly recommend switching over to online viewing how/where you want. Even if you have cable, try watching GoT online with the trial and see how you like it; maybe you can start to make the switch to cable free to save a bunch of money!

We’ve had too many GoT spoilers ourselves in the past, so we’re going to keep our site spoiler-free for the foreseeable future. Please don’t post any references to characters being alive or dead, or anything happening here or on social media, at least for a few weeks. Be careful checking your feed if you haven’t seen it.

If you’d like a primer on who is vying for the throne (with potential spoilers from previous seasons), check this post out, and may your favorite king/queen win!

Rulers Face Off in New Game of Thrones Trailer

Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister face off for the throne  (as well as someone else…) in the new Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer.

Potential Spoilers from past seasons:

Keep in mind these aren’t the only people vying for the throne, you’ve got plenty of surviving characters who might be interested:

  • Daenerys Targaryen – Top 3 for sure.
  • Jon Snow – Top 3 for sure.
  • Cersei / Jaime Lannister – Top 3 for sure.
  • Night King – You can’t count out the bad guy in a GRRM novel.
  • Petyr Baelish / Sansa Stark – A startup house could reach the throne, but they’ll probably throw in with Jon.
  • Gendry (Baratheon) – Everyone forgets that Gendry is Robert Baratheon’s son even though he doesn’t know.
  • Melisandre / Davos Seaworth – Without Stannis these two could possibly make a move, though they probably won’t.
  • Arya / Bran / Benjen Stark – They’re Starks and have some claim if Jon doesn’t make it.
  • Lyanna Mormont – Everyone likes this little girl, who knows how far she’ll go.
  • Olenna Tyrell – She’s pissed and good at the chess game of power.
  • Jaqen H’ghar – Calling it now: one of the above finally sits down on the throne, then takes off their mask to reveal the Many Faced God, winks at the camera, and the series ends.

Here’s a chart:

If you’re a cordcutter without HBO, keep in mind that you can get it on Amazon, and there’s a 7 day free trial. It’s definitely been worth a periodic subscription to binge all the shows along with each new season of Game of Thrones.
