The wait is almost over, Folks!
The mental preparations for diehard fans are starting as Season 8 is about to air on April 14, 2019, after an intermission of almost a year! If you’re as excited as we are, then we’ve got some top-notch tips for you to plan your awesome launch night viewing.
We’ve got the key ingredients to help you watch Game of Thrones season 8 properly!
Where to Watch
For the upcoming occasion, we’ve pinned down the 3 best-streaming sites so you can be sure you don’t miss out on a single moment of the excitement. Of course, there are the usual suspects that you can turn to for uninterrupted viewing such NordVPN and Amazon, but they do offer some of the most reliable streaming services out there.
NordVPN gives you borderless internet access to any TV show, movie, and documentary your heart desires from outside your region or country through a highly secured and reliable VPN connection. For a tiny fee of $2.99 per month, you full access to a lot more than G.O.T, so you’ll get your money’s worth.
HBO is probably the best option for everything Game of Thrones if you live in the U.S. From season 8 trailers to previous seasons catch-up and latest news, you have it all. The streaming service offers a 7-day trial period challenging if you’re up to all-season recap. After that prices start at $14.99 and go up depending on which plan you choose.
Sky Atlantic is how you watch GoT if you reside in the U.K., with two different options on offer: Sky Atlantic TV or Now TV Entertainment Pass. Both channels will air season 8 in its entirety and you will also be able to watch all 7 previous seasons for a delighted binge-watch.
GoT Themed Party Drinks
There are tons of GoT products available on the market so we’ve selected a few that we think will bring an air of:
White Walker Whisky by Jonny Walker
The most awesome thing about this whiskey is the frosted bottle which makes the perfect centerpiece for a GoT viewing party. It offers the taste of rich seasonal flavors including vanilla, red fruits, and orchard fruits, which will take your taste buds on a journey through the seven kingdoms. The retail price is on the higher end but if Whisky is on your list, you won’t be disappointed.
Game of Thrones Beer “Seven Kingdoms”
This awesome beer has been created by Ommegang in the style of a traditional Belgian beer. It’s pretty potent and has the taste of a hoppy wheat ale. The traditional drink of many of the characters featured in the show this beer is the perfect beverage to accompany this premiere.
Game of Thrones Chardonnay
This is the perfect white wine to drink from your favorite chalice or goblet. Reenact Tyrion Lannister’s most famous quotes whilst quaffing down this super-refined Chardonnay before you settle in for the big viewing.
Eat Your Way Through the Seven Kingdoms

Hold the door for your guests with this super-satisfying stew. Super simple to make and the added bonus is that it will feed as many guests as you need it to. Made from Turkey White Chili this is a fabulous heartwarming stew that your guests will love to ladle onto your GoT themed plates.
Sansa’s Sassy Lemon Cakes
This yummy magical dessert was dedicated to Sansa Stark Rebecca of Sugar & Soul for finally coming out of her pitiful princess role in season 5. The magical layered Lemon starts spongy, creamy custard and dense layer in the button that just melt in your mouth.
Game of Scones
Spice up your scones with pumpkin seeds and berry butter for a taste sensation worthy of the fantastical kingdom of Dorn itself. Sweet and tasty these little treats are worthy of a title all of their own.
