The first episode of Game of Thrones season 8 broke all records on HBO and enjoyed a stunning amount of 17,5 million viewers only in the USA on live TV on April 14th. But, lots of fans still haven’t seen the first episode (and the rest of the episodes in the season), and maybe you wonder if and how you can watch Game of Thrones season 8 on Amazon.com? Well, here you have the answer!
If you make a quick search for Game of Thrones season 8 on Amazon.com, you will find the chance to buy it on DVD later, Blu-Ray later, and some more options. But, you also notice that there is no such thing as Instant Video purchasing option. It might come later, but currently, the only thing you will find is the chance to subscribe to HBO Now at Amazon.com. What does this mean? This means, that you will have the chance to buy yourself an HBO Now subscription using your Amazon account, at Amazon.com. Now that is actually quite convenient, but there is one thing you have to be aware of before you continue.
If you take a quick look at the image above, you will notice that in order to buy an HBO subscription at Amazon.com, you will first need to have an Amazon Prime subscription. There is no way to avoid this, so if you want to purchase your HBO Now subscription on Amazon.com, you better have your Prime subscription in order first.
If you already have an Amazon Prime subscription, that shouldn’t case you much trouble, but if you don’t, that means you will have to pay 12 USD per month for a Prime subscription, and later 15 USD per month for the HBO subscription.
If you need an Amazon Prime subscription, that is fair and no trouble at all. But, if you do not really want or need the Prime subscription, then that feels quite expensive.
Is this the easiest way to buy an HBO subscription?
If you are an Amazon user, this for sure feels like a convenient way to buy your HBO subscription as well. But, if you do not have an Amazon Prime subscription, this is throwing 12 USD out of the window every month. There are, luckily, other ways to purchase your HBO Now subscription as well, giving you access to all the stuff you will get signing up for HBO on Amazon, and you can sign up, even if you live outside the USA and do not have an American payment card. How? Check the following article to find out how you can sign up for HBO Now outside the USA!
In a little while you can watch Game of Thrones without an HBO subscription as well!
If you search for Game of Thrones on Amazon, you will see that it is possible to purchase the earlier seasons and episodes one by one. But, for a little while longer, you will need an HBO subscription to watch season 8. But, as the last season is history and people have forgotten about it (more or less), it will turn available as Amazon Instant Videos online, and you can purchase the episodes and seasons manually.
Where are you going to watch Game of Thrones season 8 online?
Will you watch it on HBO after purchasing a subscription on Amazon? Or will you wait for it to arrive normally to Amazon? Or will you just buy an HBO Now subscription? Or maybe you will be a bit more radical and watch Game of Thrones season 8 online on Hotstar in India (a much cheaper version)?
