Too much demand...
It was a digital Red Wedding during the season premiere of Game of Thrones. Deadline reports that viewer demand crashed HBO Go's servers, similar to how the True Detective season finale did last month. HBO Go users went to Twitter to complain, with the service's Twitter account admitting to the problem with:
Looks like there's trouble in the realm. Apologies for the inconvenience. We'll be providing updates, so please stay tuned. #GameofThrones
The ratings for the show will be available tomorrow. By potential comparison, the season finale of True Detective drew 3.5 million viewers. The third season premiere of Game of Thrones brought in 4.37 million.
