Welcome to a spoiler-free guide on how to watch Game of Thrones episode 3 online. If you’ve been keeping track and watching the trailers you will know that this is the big one. Featuring, the longest battle scene in history, yep that’s right – in history, this is going to be one to tune in for.
Unlike the first two episodes of this season, episode 3 is set to be all action. Expect typical Game of Thrones-style warfare and loss of main characters, only three episodes in and this is the episode to change everything. So if you’re here pre-planning your viewing party, this is the place to be to see how to watch Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3 online.
Game of Thrones season 8, Episode 3: when and where?
Due to time zones, depending on where you live this could mean some less than pleasant live streaming times. For UK fans expect to tune in at 2am to watch live for example.
You can see a full list of streaming times and locations for English speaking countries down below.
We’ve tracked down the streaming services, costs and times for the third episode so you can catch it as it goes live. With a run time of an hour and 22 minutes, this episode feels more like a small movie than an episode of a show.
We would attempt to catch you up on seasons 1-7 in preparation for the new episode but considering there’s 2 days, 15 hours and 30 minutes worth of content before this season even started…it might take us a while. Just know, this season has started off big and is only getting more immense!
So with both the first two episodes now live, this is the place to be to see how to watch Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3, no matter where you live.
Watch Game of Thrones episode 3: stream from outside your country
Want to watch Game of Thrones season 8, episode 3 in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, India, UAE or New Zealand? We’ve found all of your best options and listed them below.
But, if you find yourself in the unfortunate circumstances where you’ve booked a holiday over the air time of the first episode, then things get a bit more difficult. For those unlucky fans, all hope isn’t lost yet. You will find that watching it won’t be an option thanks to geo-blocking. This means that broadcasters do tend to try and stop you from watching in other countries, putting up some virtual roadblocks.
But, thanks to a little bit of working around, there is still a way to catch all the episodes while you’re away. By using a VPN, you will still be able to catch up on the show by changing your IP address to a location back where you live, allowing you to watch that important first episode (assuming that doesn’t breach any TS&Cs, of course) – and that’s without finding some dodgy stream on Reddit.
We’ve tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend these as the three best VPN options currently available:
1. Express VPN (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee)
This is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now thanks to its speed, security and ease-of-use. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out Express VPN and get 3 months FREE with an annual plan
2. NordVPN: SmartPlay tech makes NordVPN a great, affordable choice for streaming
3. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go and with a focus on security
Watch Game of Thrones episode 3 online in the USA
With HBO having the rights to Game of Thrones, it is absolutely no surprise that they are the place to go to watch it in the US. Unfortunately, it will probably also be no surprise that this means you will have to sign up to a HBO subscription to watch the show.
HBO does offers a few packages, all of which are pretty flexible. That means you can sign up for one month, finish the second episode and then cancel if needs be.
Not to mention, HBO offers free trials on all of its packages, which helps soften the blow. Prices start at $14.99 a month with HBO and go up depending on which package you choose.
Season 8, episode 3 airs on HBO on Sunday, April 28 at 9pm ET, 6pm PT. It will then be available for catch up from then onwards.
