How to watch Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 in the UK – streaming details, TV channels, and air times. (Contains Game of Thrones spoilers.)

"Game of Thrones" fans have been waiting patiently for almost two years now since the destruction of the Wall, the death of Littlefinger, and the revelation of Jon Snow's true parentage and links to Daenerys closed out Season 7 in August 2017.

But good things come to those who wait: "Game of Thrones" Season 8 has officially made its way to TV channels and streaming services, and Twitter will no longer be a safe place to scroll on Monday mornings if you're looking to avoid spoilers. 

Last night's episode, among other things, saw the culmination of GoT S8's first two episodes – the Battle of Winterfell. If you've not yet found out what became of your favourite (and least favourite) characters in Episode 3, you can find out where and when to get your fix below. 

How can I watch "Game Of Thrones" Season 8, Episode 3 in the UK?

While "Game of Thrones" fans in the US can watch Season 8 on HBO, new episodes in the UK will be available on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV

When can I watch it?

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 Episode 3 was first shown at 2am UK time on April 29, a simulcast with the more palatable 9pm Eastern Time US showing on HBO. Those with a less pressing need to know the outcome of the Battle of Winterfell and the fate of the remaining Stark clan (Jon Snow, Arya, Sansa, Brand, and Theon Greyjoy) and their unlikely brothers and sisters in arms, can catch the repeat at 9pm on Monday April 29 – a release schedule due to remain the same in the coming weeks – or catch up any time via their Sky or NOW TV services. 

How long is "Game of Thrones" Season 8?

Coming in at six episodes, "Game of Thrones" Season 8 is the shortest offering of the show to-date. Season 8, however, at least makes up for the shortfall by delivering episodes that range from 54 minutes (Episode 1, "Winterfell"), to as much as 82 minutes in last night's Episode 3 ("The Long Night".)

What happens in "Game of Thrones" Season 8?

With the Battle of Winterfell having now taken place and three episodes still to go, Season 8 of "Game of Thrones" marks the final six episodes of the sprawling fantasy epic based on George R.R. Martin's "Song of Fire and Ice" novels. While reading the books may offer some insight into the plot of Season 8, Martin's series remains unfinished, with The Winds of Winter still unpublished after almost a decade and a final novel, A Dream of Spring, due to complete the arc. 

With Episode 3 of Season 8 having already aired, some clues as to how the next three episodes might unfold are already on offer. For a glimpse of what's to come, take a look below at the new teaser trailer for Episode 4:
