Here’s how to get HBO NOW free trial anywhere in the world, including outside US, on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and watch Game of Thrones season 5 premiere on Sunday, April 12th. For complete details, head past the jump.

At Apple’s Spring Forward event, HBO’s CEO took to the stage and announced that its NOW streaming service would be headed to the Apple TV, iPhone and iPad. Staying true to their word, HBO NOW is live on all the aforementioned platforms, bringing the television giant’s humungous catalogue of movies and TV shows to the masses.

The most interesting bit of the whole announcement was the fact that HBO had chosen Apple’s platform to premiere Game of Thrones season 5 by making the NOW app exclusive to Apple devices for a unknown period of time. To top things off, HBO is offering the first month absolutely free to those who subscribe in April, after which they will have to pay $14.99 a month. In short, you can watch Game of Thrones absolutely free this month if you have Apple TV or iOS device.
