Renting or PPV does not make sense for HD series. They price each pair of episodes (or disc) the same as a movie. Even on BD, GOT is 4 discs. The best deal, for hardcore fans, may be Amazon.ca at $43.49 a season on BD (suggested retail is $99.99.) As suggested, getting TMN+HBO at half price and watching it on VOD is a good deal. That works out to $24 to $30 over 3 months for all of HBO's current series. That's a lot of good TV for not too much money.
