Game of Thrones season 4

Sky Atlantic only broadcast the last episode of the current season of Game of Thrones on Monday evening, but BlinkBox, the Tesco service, already has it available for non-Sky customers on the streaming service - check out BlinkBox Game of Thrones. £17.99 for SD, £23.99 for HD. It's also available (for slightly more) on GooglePlay. That's bloody quick availability - NowTV customers probably won't get a playable version through on demand for a few more days yet!
The Blu Ray and DVD won't appear until next Spring, unless the folk at HBO have a change of heart. (I was surprised to see this year's HBO biggie True Detective out on disc earlier this month, just a few weeks after Sky finished broadcasting it.)

I started to watch on now tv 20mins after it had finished on sky

Since the Bloggeer no longer has a NowTV subscription,he should obviously
check prior to inaccurate reporting.

I certainly won't be paying Tesco to stream the series. I only pay for individual series on Blu-Ray.

I don't have an active Now TV subscription currently but my neighbour does. He gave up on watching Sky Atlantic live on a Monday evening, but has also found the Catch-Up streaming of the latest Game of Thrones episode has issues until Wednesday or even Thursday, especially for episodes that have generated buzz.
He wasn't able to view the final episode without buffering last night (Tuesday). Twitter suggests he isnot alone.
Obviously different customers in different parts of the country with different equipment may have different experiences of Now TV. The general opinion though is that what Now TV advertises as available isn't always efficiently delivered.
I have not used BlinkBox recently so cannot say whether that's any better btw.

Amazon Instant also has it for similar price.

Blinkbox are giving away 1,000 clubcoard points, a free pizza, and you get £5 credit when you first sign up!

So you can get it effectively for free...

Get it on Wuaki tv and get a free Chromecast

Apologies if this appears more than once but if you want the full season of Game of Thrones go to Wuaki TV and you get a free Chromecast with it, excellent value for money as the Chromecast sells for £30 and the series is less. Chromecast is excellent as there are so many services that stream to it now either directly or through another app Film On is great for cord cutters as it allows you to watch almost all the free to air UK channels plus Netflix and Plex too.
