You Can Finally Watch Game Of Thrones Season 6 Without Foxtel

If you’re one of those rare souls who refuses to pirate Game Of Thrones, the wait is finally over. Following yesterday’s season-six finale on Foxtel, the series is now available to purchase in its entirety on Google Play and iTunes. We have the purchase links and prices.

Season six of HBO’s award-winning fantasy series was arguably the best yet with plenty of fist-pounding moments and trademark shock-deaths (it’s Game Of Thrones so that’s not a spoiler!) Now that the season has aired its final episode, the exclusivity deal with Foxtel has once again ended, meaning you can now snap up digital downloads of each episodes on iTunes or Google Play. (It’s also available to subscribers of Fetch TV.)

On iTunes and Google Play, individual episodes will set you back $2.99 in standard definition or $3.49 for HD. However, it’s more cost effective (and binge-friendly) to grab the entire season in one purchase. On Google Play, this will set you back $23.49 and $27.99 for the SD and HD versions, respectively. iTunes is a bit more exxy: $25.99 for standard-def and $30.99 for high-def. For our money, HD is definitely the way to go — it’s only a few bucks extra and the sumptuous production values are definitely worth it.

For physical media fans, you’re going to be waiting a while — previous seasons have taken around seven to eight months to appear on DVD and Blu-ray. Alternatively, you can sign up to HBO Now via a VPN or pirate the episodes via your torrent site of choice — although anybody who is open to these legally dubious options will surely have done so already.
