Don't know about legal but available via Internet from various sites, some legal I believe and most not.

assuming you regard  avoidance of geo-blocking as legal (which it is)  then you could get a VPN or DNS service, and subscribe to HBO Nordic. it's about $20/month I think and you get load sof cool HBO content. no need for other subscriptions.

I can't speak for the quality of streaming content from Denmark/Norway etc though as I haven't tried it.

It's a violation of HBOs terms and conditions, the usual response to that is a termination of service,
whether it would make you liable for any civil action has not been determined..... But it you are certainly not committing a crime.

it would be like running a server off the end of and ADSL connection, likely to get you kicked off , def not going to land you in prison.

The "cleanly legal" option is to wait for the DVD set. 

(and I suppose I should add "and buy it"...)

... and yes, patience is a virtue.

Actually, I recall season 1 screened on Prime (eventually) - did season 2?  or 3?

you need a US cable subscription to get HBO.

the only way to get HBO is to subscribe to HBO nordic, which is available standalone

if you are going to do this  go through Sweden it's cheaper, works out about $13.50 NZ. Denmark about $16.50 and Finland nearer $20.00.

Season 1-3 are on fatso.

Season 4 has release date not announced, searching there.

Can also check out video stores as some of them now hire TV programs.

I did see it on the pay per views on quickflix, but not sure which seasons.

To watch when released though guess it's sky or one of the overseas streaming services.

I would expect season 4 to be released on DVD/bd in February 2015, this is the same month they released season 2 (feb 2013) and season 3 (feb 2014). This also seems to be a worldwide release period.

Seems HBO is in no rush to try and stem the tide of piracy, with GOT earning the title of most pirated file.

Because they know it generates millions of DVD sales. Which is where they make the money.
