***Update: The entire boxset of Game of Thrones S1 to S8 is now available to binge-watch on Showmax.***

The first episode of Game of Thrones has aired! It’s one of the biggest shows in the entire world and there are only six precious episodes before the battle for Westeros ends. Who will live? Who will die (please please please not Tyrion)? Who gets to wipe the sneer off Cersei’s face? What does Jon do when he figures out the whole aunt thing? So many things to see!

Here’s where to watch all episodes of the eighth and final season of this epic fantasy series in South Africa. New episodes air every Monday.


For superfans who think sleep is overrated, each episode airs at 03:00 on M-Net (Channel 101) in-line with the USA premiere. For the more sensible people with jobs and employers who expect them to be awake at their desk, there’s then a second showing at 22:00.

If you really think I’ll be waking up at 3am every Monday for the next 6 weeks, just to watch game of thrones, you are absolutely correct

DStv Now

Same deal as DStv for live viewing. The show is also loaded to Catch Up after the 03:00 broadcast and can even be downloaded to watch on smartphones and tablets. Catch up here.


Each episode is added to Showmax on Mondays at 22h00. Twitter feed mute skills are going to come in very handy to avoid spoilers during the day. Watch it here.

If you’ve never watched a single episode, shame! (that’s an in-joke that will totally make sense once you get on board). It’s a serious time commitment, but there’s still time to live the phenomenon that is Game of Thrones and enjoy the series from the start.

Stream all eight seasons of Game of Thrones on Showmax.

There’s a 14-day free trial for new subscribers, or add Showmax to your DStv Premium account for free here.
