MUMBAI: HBO GO suffered under weighty demands as viewers desperate to catch up with Khaleesi, Jon Snow and the ravaged Stark clan are greeted with an error message, less than one month after a similar breakdown left True Detective fans staring at a blank screen. Such was the clamor of Game of Thrones fans tuning in to watch the premiere of season four on Sunday evening that HBO GO once again crashed. Less than a month after the channel’s streaming service broke down during the finale of True Detective, subscribers were once more left frustrated by the message “Fatal error” when the hit fantasy show resumed.

I’m outraged about @HBOGO. Someone else’s parents pay good money for HBO and I expect to be able to watch what I want when I want.

Almost two years ago, HBO launched HBO GO, a website which features 1,000 hours of content available for streaming in standard or high definition. Content available on the service includes HBO original programming, movies, comedy specials, documentaries, sports, and late night adult programming. Twitter embed code:

Having trouble accessing @HBO GO? Send a raven. @GameOfThrones will be available soon on HBO On Demand with some cable providers.

— HBO GO (@HBOGO) April 7, 2014

The premiere debuted on Sunday, 7 April and many problems were reportedly fixed just an hour later, but social media was still filled with complaints, as fans yearned to hear the fallout from the infamous “Red Wedding” climax of series three.
