Blockbuster started to wake up, but it was only after their death keel. I definitely will not subscribe to a cable provider just to watch A tv show. Maybe if it is a real problem I will just go outside instead…. Two can play at this game. Companies that fail to innovate or get with the times ultimately fail, time and time again. I hope they come to their senses. Ask any Comcast field rep who sells or installs cable TV services these days: The vast majority of the generation of people 35 years and younger will ONLY have Internet installed, and look to news stories to see the figures on the numbers of existing subscribers who in the past three years have removed the cable service and kept only the Internet.
I watch it on stream from a good source on the internet. Except that I just got a cease and desist letter for downloading Game of Thrones.
HBO needs to swallow their pride and make friends with Netflix if they hope to have any hand in digital distribution.
They lack the bandwidth and reliability needed to host such a powerhouse show. Just so happens the path of least resistance is jumping on the Netflix bandwagon. HBO is just stubborn. Stubborn things tend to die. And given the DoJ apparently approved the Comcast-Time Warner merger, no death knells will be sounding any time soon. And odds are your cable bill will continue its upward trajectory. The Telecommunications Act Clinton?
Thanks to the loopholes, however, that legislators conveniently, deliberately put in the bill, it has allowed for the opposite. And given 6 or is it 5 now? The puppets who so masterfully pull the puppets strings. As the cable industry stands. How is that more convenient? I wish HBO could do an end run around the bloated cable providers and sell access directly. I wonder if it would be more profitable for HBO to do it that way. You can do internet, TV and phone across the same stinking data line.
Heck, you already do. They have to keep that facade up I guess. So you can watch it on the toilet or whilst driving to work. You know what is convenient? Watching TV shows on a TV and paying for them only once. I have Ooma for my phone and Roku for my TV. I finally wised up and just started paying for my internet only — the other two services run through the data line. Make it, and only it not as part of some huge bundling deal, available online for everyone at a reasonable price point.
T for FREE! The article states that piracy is a way to watch it. The lie is whoever told you you knew how to read and comprehend. So, how exactly am I suppose to watch this? Help would be appreciated. But eavesdropping ones and zeros is not stealing. There is nothing of substance to steal, literally speaking. But some of us regular people are. Another lie to prop up a tired old establishment that became obsolete years ago….
Intellectual property is substance. I am generally satisfied with HBOGo. However, I was not able to watch the finale of True Detective because of heavy traffic and I expect the same thing will happen tonight.
I know of one particular website that downloads it the day after. Dear HBO. I do actually prefer to pay — that way, the producer gets to make more great drama, just like GoT.
I am in the same boat. I do NOT want cable! I watch relatively little tv, what I do watch is mostly PBS. This is one of the few exceptions to that rule. I would gladly PAY them for the new episodes to stream to my computer. I am not even particularly tech savvy, do not have a smart phone or any of the latest and greatest technologies.
The tv has a digital converter box and rabbit ears. But, with a computer and internet, you would think that any SMART company would want to get this business. Look forward to the day when all producers are forced to up their standards because consumers can select what they pay for. I always buy the Best-buy exclusive blue-ray boxsets but now that everybody is talking about what they have seen, I need a way to see those episodes the same day in low resolution, low quality but at least I will have seen them before someone tell a punch.
It is like when I record a hockey game because I am working and I try to not hear the score before I watch it…neerly impossible! You can always use a VPN of your choice to bypass geo restrictions! I checked to see if I would be able to buy new episodes from iTunes and found that no episodes are made available until AFTER the season is completely over with. So disappointed that I am unable to watch any episode of game of thrones even though I am an HBO subscriber!
Feel compelled to cancel my subscription and illegally download all of the episodes so I can watch them whenever I want. I know, I know, but the cable companies! Fuck them. Adapt or die. Many other business models have gone through massive change since the dawn of the internet.
Get with the program, figure out a way to survive in the new landscape and stop crying. And let people watch what they want to watch on demand. Thank you. That is one of the greatest reasons for piracy. So fuck you, HBO.
Figure your shit out or die. We, people outside the US have a hard time getting the episodes online without waiting for local providers. How do we stay away from spoilers that way? An depending on their broadcasting schedule? Hell no. Online broadcasting is a demmand not being covered. Hit the market and make it yours. Your email address will not be published.

Martin, Game of Thrones follows the fate of powerful families in the continents of Westeros and Essos who are vying for the ultimate seat of power — the Iron Throne.
After its first season premiered in , the show spanned a nine-year run comprising of 73 episodes spread across eight seasons, during which time it was often the most-watched, streamed, pirated and talked about TV series in the world. The show concluded in , with a six-episode final season that drew heavy criticism from critics and fans, who felt that the truncated seventh and eighth seasons — shortened, some say, so as to allow showrunners David Benioff and D.
Weiss to move on to their next project — upended the years of meticulous planning and character development that went into the first six seasons. So irate were the fans, in fact, that a quick Google search of the phrase "bad writers" will now return images of showrunners Benioff and Weiss. However, despite the lukewarm reception of its divisive final season, Game of Thrones still continues to be one of the best TV shows of the last decade.
If you haven't watched Game of Thrones before, want to re-watch it again in quarantine, or maybe you just want to re-watch your favourite episodes, then you're in luck because Sky TV has resurrected the entire Game of Thrones series from start to finish. Author George R. Martin has yet to finish the final two books in the series, and fans are desperately hoping that his version of events will prove more satisfying than the ending provided by the TV show.
