Game of Thrones Season 6: How to watch online

As per usual, Game of Thrones will be shown exclusively in the UK on Sky Atlantic so if you're a Sky customer with the right package then simply tune in via your Sky Box. If you want to watch online with an internet connection then you can do so with Sky Go or other methods

Sky Go

Sky Go is available through web browsers and a wide range of devices including games consoles, smartphones and tablets. You simply download the app if necessary and log in with your Sky ID and password. Note that on consoles you may need an extra subscription such as Xbox Live Gold.

Game of Thrones Season 6 will be available on demand at 10pm each week following the broadcast of each new episode.

Sky Now TV

If you're not a Sky customer then don't worry as there is still an easy way to watch Game of Thrones Season 5 online. Sky Atlantic (and various other channels) is available through Sky Now TV as part of the Entertainment package which costs £6.99 per month.

You don't have to sign up for a year or anything so you can cancel the subscription after Game of Thrones finishes if you want. If you're a new customer you can do a 14-day free trial which will cover a couple of episodes.

Like Sky Go, Now TV is available on a wide range of devices including Chromecast, Roku, YouView, Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac, Android and iOS. Sky also has the Now TV Box which you can buy for just £14.99.

Since Game of Thrones is an HBO TV show you can also use the broadcaster's streaming service, HBO Now, to watch Game of Thrones Series 6. However, it's only available across the pond so you'll need to use a VPN in order to gain access.
