You get 1-month of HBO Now absolutely free. You can of course cancel before the one month expires and you won’t be charged anything.
Game of Thrones Season 7 runs for 6 episodes so you’ll need at least 2 months to watch the entire season. You might consider taking the free month and keeping it for 1 month extra before cancelling if you want to watch the entire season.
You can also cancel the VPN service after 1-2 months too or keep it for future shows and other uses.
Alternative VPN Services
There are alternative VPN services out there and you don’t need to stick with IPVanish.
