Returning to Westeros for the seventh season of Game of Thrones last week was bittersweet. Sure, we got to catch up with all of our favorite characters, but now we only have twelve episodes left to look forward to before the show is over. If you’d rather not dwell on that, scroll on to find out how to watch tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones — the second episode of the season — without spending a dime.

Before we get started, it’s worth noting that the season premiere of Game of Thrones is currently free to watch on HBO’s website. If you missed it, you can catch up right now by heading to this link.

The easiest way to watch Game of Thrones this weekend is to take advantage of the HBO Now 1-month trial. The app is available on a wide variety of platforms, from iOS to Android to Roku to Verizon, so no matter which device you decide to use, you should be able to watch the first few episodes.

Amazon gives Prime members the option to add HBO to their Prime Video experience for $14.99/month, but as long as you remember to cancel, you can start a 7-day free trial just for Sunday. Tack this trial on at the end of the HBO Now trial and you’re already five weeks into the season for free.

Similar to the Amazon offer, Hulu gives all of its subscribers the ability to add HBO to their package for $14.99/month, but gives them the first month for free. If you’re already paying for one of Hulu’s limited or no commercials plan, or signed up for Hulu’s live TV offering, don’t pass this opportunity up.

Finally, for the students out there, over 70 colleges offer free access to HBO Go. Check and see if your college is on the list, and if it is, head over to HBOGO.com, choose Sign In in the upper-right corner and find your college at the bottom of the “All Providers” list. Some restrictions may apply, but if you’re lucky, you might be able to watch the entirety of Game of Thrones season 7 without lifting a finger.
