HBO GO Crashes Due to Game of Thrones Premiere
While some viewers were able to watch the Game of Thrones premiere that debuted last night, others were left angry and disappointed. Those who tuned into the premiere through HBO GO were unable to successfully complete the episode, with the HBO service crashing due to overwhelming demand that the service experienced. An HBO GO representative did confirm the issue that affected potentially millions of viewers of Game of Thrones, and stated that the service was available on several platforms shortly after the outage took place.
It is worth noting that HBO GO also experienced an outage last month when it aired the finale of True Detective.
