HBO - panic stations

OK, so Game of Thrones starts in one week and I don't have access to HBO, so I need some advice Stat. I know some of you will just tell me to download it, but as far as I know, you can't download GoT until the end of the season. I get Walking Dead on iTunes so it's not like I'm download-incapable. I've tried speaking to several people at SwissCom, which I'm contracted to, but they say they don't provide HBO. I heard that Sky+ might, and that I can get it through AppleTV. I would appreciate advice from someone who actually HAS HBO, or someone with some insider info rather than the usual "download it" crap.
Thanks.

Re: HBO - panic stations

One possible option:
You need Teleclub get a package which has Sky Atlantic HD which will show Game of Thrones starting April 7.

Teleclub needs, Cable (UPC Cablecom, GGA Maur, Wasserwerke Zug, Stadtantenne Baar, or Sasag Schaffhausen), Swisscom TV, or Sunrise TV.

I'll be downloading the day after it's screened in the US, just like I do for The Walking Dead.

Re: HBO - panic stations

I blame trigger-happy spam deputies ....... in the good ol' days, some kind soul would have just posted a link on where to stream such series. Now they're zapped within seconds, before anyone has chance to use them.

or, people could post directly into this thread.

I also want to know how to do this.

I used to the bit torrent site isohunt, but it's been shut down now.

There are other sites, but just saying which one doesn't really help. There is always a few "download" buttons, but how do you know which one to press etc.
They are also loaded with porn pop ups, so I can't help but think they are dodgey as hell.

Re: HBO - panic stations

www.thepiratebay.se -> search -> click SE header to order by most seeders -> click the magnet icon -> accept in your bittorrent client (e.g. uTorrent) -> wait

Re: HBO - panic stations

You can stream directly using XBMC (ProjectFreeTV, 1Channel, IceFilms). Go to www.xbmchub.com for one site that will help. Use the wizard and you can get a laptop/AppleTV 1or2, or many others devices going in no time.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll report back with the method and degree of success I have, and whether or not I find Swiss Cheddar's dragons.
