I’m pretty sure all of you out there have seen, or at the very least, heard of an amazing TV show called The Game of Thrones, right? It is available exclusively on officially on HBO, as usual, since it first started airing back in mid-July and concluded by the end of August. So you might be looking to catch the latest season, the season 7 for free around the web, wondering if it is available at all. Well, it is, and you stumbled upon the right place on the internet to get to it. Us along with a little help from Kodi will have you binge-watching GoT in no time.
If you have been living on some other dimension till now, I should tell you that Kodi is a free TV and media streaming service, which gives you hassle-free access to premium quality content around the web. So obviously, you don’t have to ask if you can get the most torrented TV show on earth, over at Kodi, because you can. So here is how to watch Game of Thrones on Kodi.
How to Install Game of Thrones on Kodi Box
Kodi Box is a TV add-on, that is best known as Plug and Play piracy. Sounds notoriously cool, doesn’t it? That’s because it is! If you don’t have it, you should consider getting one. It has HDMI capabilities, and you can use it to stream media on to any platform of your choice, ranging from a Windows PC all the way down to your Android smartphone.
There are even some customized plugins available that can get you free access to many popular paid shows. Illegality at its peak, huh? Anyway, let us see how we can get ourselves some GoT goods!
First, you have to get yourself a proper add-on. Because Game of Thrones is not globally available on the air for some reason. HBO says even previews are not available at my geolocation, which sucks. But we can bypass all of these annoyances with the right add-on sources.
Earlier, there was a popular repository called the Fusion repository which was meant for watching Game of Thrones and now seems to be unavailable. But there is another alternative to that, which is good to know. It is called as Ares repository. It has shown itself to be a pretty good alternative to our beloved Fusion repository, so let us see how to get it in the Kodi Box.
- Go to Settings -> File Manager -> Add Source. Select the option that says “none.”
- Enter this URL http://aw.ares-project.com/ at hit the OK button.
- In case the earlier URL did not work, you can also type ares-repo.eu and then download the file named as repository.aresproject-0.1.0.zip.
- In the box you see below, enter Ares Wizard. Select OK.
- Come back to your home screen and select Add-ons. In that, select the icon that says “Unbox.”
- Select Install from zip file option. Then, select Ares Wizard.
- Select the aresproject-0.0.6.zip repository and wait for the wizard to be installed completely.
- After the installation of the aresproject-0.0.6.zip repository is finished, go back into Add-ons and then select the Unbox icon again.
- This time, select Install from Repository-> Ares Project followed by Program Add-ons. Then select Ares Wizard from the list.
- Select the Install option and once again, wait for some time and let the installation finish.
After you get the alert that the installation has completed successfully, Ares Wizard will now be available to you on Kodi. You can access it anytime from Program Add-ons.
Simple Steps to Watch Game of Thrones on Kodi
Now that our tool to free Game of Thrones has been installed let us proceed to how we can start to watch Game of Thrones on Kodi. Note that these steps are made by keeping the Kodi Krypton 7 in mind. But it should work fine even on earlier versions like Leia or Jarvis.
- Head over to Settings > System Settings > Expert Mode > Add-ons from your home screen. You will have to enable Unknown Sources for installation. If you get a warning prompt, simply click Yes to it.
- Navigate to Settings > System Settings > Expert Mode > Add-ons and there, select None.
- Enter ares-repo.eu in the text box and then download the repository.aresproject-0.1.0.zip
- Name it as Ares Wizard and click on OK.
- Go back to your home screen and now, select Add-ons and then click on the Package Installer Icon.
- Now go to Install from Zip file > Ares Wizard > Kodi-repos > English. Next, select the repository.exodus-1.0.1.zip repo to be installed.
- Once you get the notification saying that Add-on enabled, select the Install from repository > Exodus repository > Video Add-ons > Exodus. Click on the Install button once again.
- You will receive the Exodus add-on Enabled message when the installation is completed successfully. Now return to your home screen and launch the add-on by selecting Exodus from Add-ons.
Great! Now you are capable to watch Game of Thrones on Kodi. But beware, you are now officially an unofficial pirate, so you might get in trouble for using you unprotected IP. Make sure you have invested in a proper VPN service to secure your activities and hid those details from your ISP. There are several good options for VPN services for Kodi. Some popular ones are options like TunnelBear, but alternatively, general services like the standard Android TV Box VPN will also get the job done just fine.
Using VPNs will also allow you to unblock more services which would otherwise be unavailable for your region. You can even get through the annoying, and in my opinion, unfair, ISP throttling. You will get the full bandwidth for which you are paying for, and you can employ those bits/second to stream your Game of Thrones at the maximum definition possible.
So hopefully, you now have the exact method to follow by which you can watch Game of Thrones on Kodi and a lot more on your Kodi Box. Enjoy your unofficially free subscription and try not to binge watch too much!
Note for Those Without a Kodi Box
I imagine this would be of interest to those who do not have Kodi. Good news! Well, sort of. Even the people who do not have any TV add-on and are not planning on getting one anytime soon can watch Game of Thrones over at iTunes and Google Play Movies. You can pay per episode instead of paying the entire subscription fees. But seriously though, invest in Kodi plug and play piracy, and become one of the cool pirate kids.
