Game of Thrones S4 invades Google Play and Amazon Instant Video

Game Of Thrones season four is now available on Google Play and Amazon Instant Video store, months before the official DVD release. 

The latest episodes of the hit fantasy saga can be streamed from the two sites, with prices starting from £1.89 per episode. 

The previous three seasons can also be bought from both Google Play and Amazon Instant Video, perfect if you’ve yet to dip a toe into the violent world of Westeros.

While Google Play gives you the flexibility of being able to pay per episode, those who want to make a small saving would be better off spending their golden dragons in Blinkbox’s store. 

You can buy the entire fourth season from Blinkbox for £17.99 in SD and £23.99 in HD. To get all episodes of Game of Thrones season four in HD from Google Play you’ll need to spent £24.49. 

Buying an entire season on Google Play will also see you get bonus behind the scenes features including a chat with language designer David Peterson and an introduction to some of the new characters arriving in the latest season. 

Then again, Blinkbox’s offer, which beat Google Play to the punch slightly, comes with 1,000 free Clubcard points, which can be redeemed on fuel and in-store purchases, as well as a free 10-inch Tesco Finest pizza. 

Buying seasons in bulk from Amazon Instant Video is a little cheaper. Season four in SD costs just £16.99 whereas getting it in HD costs the same as it would from Blinkbox – £23.99. 

Buying Game of Thrones from Google Play also means you’ll be able to use Chromecast to watch the action on a big screen. Then again this point may be moot as Blinkbox is headed to Chromecast soon

 Where you should spend your money depends on what you value more – bonus footage and Chromecast functionality, small savings or free pizza, fuel and groceries. 

The controversial fourth season of the show has been a huge success for HBO, with each episode averaging 18.4 million viewers and winning near-universal critical acclaim.
