How to stream the final season of Game of Thrones on Android mobile
Your country or region may have some part to play on how you can stream this series on your mobile device. For example, if you’re in the US, Hulu and HBO are the best platforms to watch Game of Thrones season 8. Also, people in the UK can watch and follow this last season on HBO, while Asians will have to succumb to using the Hot Star app.
These platforms we have mentioned are available as mobile apps, and they will allow you to stream the Game of Thrones 8. We’ll explain how you will be able to use these platforms and stream GOT 8. You may have to subscribe, anyway; but, the fee is not quite high.
For the love of GOT, we will share how you can watch this series from any location of the world; however, as you may expect, you need a VPN app for that. People in the US, UK, Asia continent and some other countries who have access to HBO, Hulu, or Hot Star without restrictions do not require a VPN app.
Watch Game of Thrones on HBO on Android (HBO Go)
This last season of Game of Thrones will be streamed live on HBO Now; thus, if you expect to watch the whole scene, here is what to do. You have to sign up to have an HBO account, then, activate the trial period. Interestingly, HBO is even offering up to one month free streaming of GOT; woah! Everyone loves this series. So, when you sign up for HBO account, you’ll get one-month free access to stream Game of Thrones from any Android device freely.
We suggest the trial period because it is free; however, HBO plans start at $14.99, you can still subscribe to access more features. Nevertheless, not everyone will be able to watch this series because of country restrictions. This is a big deal here; you can’t access HBO originals or services if you are living in some countries. But, there is a solution to this restriction; you can bypass the geo-restriction with the help of a VPN app.
How to watch GOT on HBO, when you live outside the US and UK
You need a good VPN app. There are quite many of them out there, which include TunnelBear, Windscribe, PureVPN, CyberGhost, and lots more. Not all VPNs are free; thus, we recommend TunnelBear VPN. It offers up to 5000MB data cap per month and supports various worldwide servers. Also, WindScribe is another best option; it gives you a whopping 10GB (10000MB) for free every month and helps a lot of free servers too.
Watch on HULU app
Hulu is another great platform that allows you to stream original for a fee. However, just like HBO, you will have to sign up for an account with Hulu, enter the trial period and then watch the Game of Thrones on the mobile app which you’ll install on your Android device.
However, you will need a VPN app if you live outside the US because Hulu is restricted to only people living in the USA.
