If you’re a Game of Thrones fan and a Dish or Sling TV
customer, you’re going to need to subscribe to HBO Now if you
want to watch the April 14 premiere of the hit TV show’s final
Since Nov. 2018, Dish and HBO have been
involved in a dispute which has left the premium TV network
blacked out for Dish subscribers. Sling TV, Dish’s streaming
platform, has been affected by the dispute as well.
As a result, subscribers to either Dish service have been unable
to subscribe to an HBO package through their TV provider.
With the long-awaited final season of Game of Thrones premiering
on Sunday night, the satellite television company is directing its
subscribers to sign up for HBO Now.
