Service is coming?
Numerous HBO subscribers complained of outages on Sunday, just before the highly anticipated “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premiere was set to air. The network’s website, HBO.com, also crashed as the episode was airing on the East Coast, giving visitors an error message.
The dismayed users took to service watchdog site Down Detector, along with social media platforms such as Twitter, to voice their complaints of trouble with both linear service and streaming platforms.
HBO subscribers in Latin American nations appeared particularly susceptible.
An HBO representative told TheWrap that the network was not aware of service issues but was investigating.
This is not the first time that “Game of Thrones” fans have complained about difficulty while attempting to watch the phenomenally popular show. HBO Now, the network’s streaming app, went down for some viewers in June 2016 during the airing of Season 6’s penultimate episode, “Battle of the Bastards.”
Check out the tweets below.
