The first episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 - Dragonstone - will be broadcast tonight at 9pm in the UK, but since it has already screened once if you don't want to wait you can watch it on catch-up right now.

Later in this article we'll explain how you can use a much cheaper NowTV Entertainment package to watch season 7 of GoT. It's worth pointing out, too, that if you're happy to wait a few weeks and then binge-watch the entire season you can watch season 7 of Game of Thrones completely free by picking up a 14-day free trial for NowTV.

There are other ways to get free NowTV subscriptions, too. For example, if you're also considering upgrading your phone then selected Vodafone deals such as this Galaxy S8 32GB Red Entertainment package come with a free two-year NowTV Entertainment pass.
