Fans can probably all agree that it has felt like a full decade since they have had the pleasure of checking in on Westeros. Now, the wait is finally over and the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones will officially premiere on Sunday, July 16. Of course, this is 2017 so not everyone has a TV set or a cable package — but everyone wants to watch Game of Thrones (or they should). So when will the Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere be on HBO GO or HBO Now?
There is good news for those who fear spoilers and don't want to bear an even longer wait than the one fans have already had to endure this year. HBO GO claims on their official website that, "Most new movies and shows, such as Game of Thrones, is available on HBO GO when it premieres on TV." So yes, you can tune into the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones online at the exact same time as it premieres on the cable channel, which is 9 p.m. ET. Thank the old gods and the new, am I right? And, even if you're on the west coast, you can watch on HBO GO/Now at 9 p.m. ET (which is 6 p.m. PT), according to PopSugar.
While you wait for the show to take you away to a land of blissful mayhem, here are my suggestions for getting into the perfect Season 7 mood on premiere night.
Prepare A Beverage
Channel Cersei Lannister and get comfortable with your beverage of choice. Be it wine, juice, coffee, or straight up H2O, just make sure you enjoy your libations in a goblet fit for a mad King/Queen.
Watch The Season 6 Finale Again
There is always a good reason to watch the, pardon the pun, explosive finale of the sixth season of Game of Thrones. Between the perfectly haunting soundtrack and the shocking death toll, it is the perfect episode to get you right back into the world of Westeros.
Research, Research, Research
