“Is Game of Thrones on Netflix?” “Is Game of Thornes season 8 on Netflix?” At one point everyone that wants to watch Game of Thrones asks “is Game of Thrones on Netflix?”
To put simply, Game of Thrones season 8 is not on Netflix. In fact, no Game of Thrones season at all is on Netflix.
And due to the fact that while Netflix is great and does have some fantastic shows, HBO has its own two platforms called HBO NOW and HBO GO, and thus it wouldn’t make finical sense for HBO to give it away to Netflix since the majority of HBO NOW customers subscribed to HBO for Game of Thrones initially. Not to mention that Game of Thrones is the most expensive show on the market meaning that HBO really needs to make money from it. If Game of Thrones were on Netflix, HBO would have never got as many customers as it did, thus preventing the series from getting the production quality it has.
Not to mention that while Netflix has some great productions, Game of Thrones simply does not fit on Netflix.
So if you are wondering is Game of Thrones season 8 on Netflix, it’s not, and it most likely never will. But there is a way to make it work anywhere. And it’s not too hard either.
To make Game of Thrones season 8 work anywhere, you either watch it by adding HBO to your already expensive TV subscription or you watch it online.
And yes, technically you can stream it on any site with content if you want to destroy your experience due to poor quality, and if you don’t mind if your device gets infected by viruses, or you can get an HBO NOW subscription. The great thing about it is that you can get a 1-month trial, and based on the fact there are only 6 episodes in season 8 of Game of Thrones, you can cancel after the second month if you are not convinced by the content on it.
The problem with HBO NOW? It only works in the US meaning that if you are outside of the US, that you won’t be able to watch Game of Thrones. But this post is about how to make it work anywhere, and that’s what we will help you with.
To watch Game of Thrones everywhere, HBO NOW needs to think that you are in the US. It’s as simple and yet as complicated as that.
By using a VPN.
A VPN is a type of service used all over the world whether for privacy reasons or for bypassing blocks placed by services.
You just need to connect to an American server with a VPN. Well, in theory.
It’s not as simple as that due to the fact that services like HBO, of course, are aware of things like a VPN, and make an effort to prevent VPN services from working with their platforms meaning that any VPN won’t just work.
And that’s where PrivateVPN comes in. While other services advertise about how many servers they have, we choose quality over quantity. Having an enormous amount of servers to connect to is great until you realize that you can’t use most of the servers for the things that you want to use them for.
PrivateVPN? It doesn’t have the most severs out there, yet it supports the most Netflix regions on the market. It also has servers with their internet capacity coming from IP transit providers directly rather than just from hosting companies, meaning you overall get a stable connection which is important for streaming of content. PrivateVPN is also one of the few services that support DAZN which is the Netflix of live streaming.
Sure, some other services that will also work with HBO, but if you are looking for a service that supports everything that you want rather than having more servers than you can comprehend that also don’t work with a lot of services, then PrivateVPN is a great choice for you. One that also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
If you have been wondering is Game of Thrones season 8 on Netflix, it’s not, but there sure is a way to make it work anywhere. You just need HBO NOW, PrivateVPN or some other VPN that works with HBO NOW, and, well, the HBO NOW app which there is a blog post about on our site. Something to check out if you want HBO NOW on your phone or Fire TV Stick.
