HBO’s much-touted live-streaming service HBO Go crashed on Sunday night during the fourth season premiere of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”.
Some viewers logging on to the streaming service were stuck with either long load times or the message: “Fatal error – Failed to load the service error definitions.” HBO tweeted numerous apologies about the problem.
In a statement to THR, they say: “HBO GO did experience issues due to overwhelming demand around the premiere of Game of Thrones. The service has returned to several platforms and we are working hard towards full recovery, which we expect soon”
A similar incident happened during the “True Detective” finale a few weeks ago.
