If you're one of those rare souls who refuses to pirate Game Of Thrones, the wait is finally over. Following yesterday's season-seven finale on Foxtel, the series is now available to purchase in its entirety on Google Play and iTunes. Here are the purchase links and prices!
Season 7 of HBO's award-winning fantasy series was arguably the best yet. Now that the season has aired its final episode, Foxtel's exclusivity rights have ended, meaning you can snap up digital downloads of each episode on iTunes or Google Play.
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. This year, Google and Apple have also dropped the price, presumably due to the shorter episode count.
On Google Play, this will set you back $19.99 and $23.99 for the SD and HD versions, respectively. The iTunes pricing is identical: $19.99 for standard-def and $23.99 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 the latter option is wrong and may have significant risks.
It's worth noting that Foxtel Now is currently running a two-week free trial. If you don't care about "owning" the episodes, you can sign up and watch the whole thing for free. Just remember to cancel your subscription before the trial period ends.
