With just 4 days to go for Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere, the excitement and hype surrounding the series has reached new heights and now that we know Daenerys is going to reach Dragonstone in the first episode of season 7, we just can’t wait to see what happens next. However, many Indian fans of the show are still confused regarding where they should watch the latest season, as the show is heavily censored on TV and it airs one day after the USA release and that kind of spoils the fun and excitement. Luckily, Hotstar is streaming the series and it does away with all the limitations that are associated with watching Game of Thrones legally in India.
Game of Thrones is a heavily pirated show and every year it keeps on breaking it’s own piracy records as it is downloaded by millions of people around the world and India is no exception to this. Star India entered into a partnership with HBO last year and that allowed it’s video streaming service, Hotstar to stream Game of Thrones in India and it just makes things way easier for the fans.
Hotstar streams Game of Thrones uncensored in India, and it is a really good as censorship on TV is one of the major reason why the show gets pirated in India. Also, the episode airs shortly after it’s USA release and that’s really helpful, considering the amount of spoilers that get shared online after every episode airs. As a result, Indian fans will get to watch Game of Thrones Season 7 uncut, ad-free and minutes after it releases in USA!
To watch Game of Thrones on Hotstar, you will have to subscribe for it’s premium membership, which costs Rs 199 a month, with the first month being free. So the fans don’t even have to actually pay for the initial month and can cancel the subscription immediately after the season gets over. However, it’s important to know that Hotstar will charge you Rs 199 while subscribing, and that amount will be used to pay for the 2nd month of subscription, as the 1st month is free. This subscription is way cheaper than what Netflix charges and a bit costlier when compared to Amazon Prime Video, but you get to watch Game of Thrones which isn’t available on the other sites and and not to forget the other awesome HBO series like Silicon Valley, Last Week Tonight and movies and live sporting events.
