On Sunday (April 6), “Game of Thrones” fans took to Twitter to post images of their screens stuck on loading landing pages, unable to watch the highly-anticipated Season 4 premiere. HBO even tweeted out that users were experiencing “trouble in the realm.” Yeah, that’s an understatement:
Looks like there’s trouble in the realm. Apologies for the inconvenience. We’ll be providing updates, so please stay tuned. #GameofThrones

“HBO Go did experience issues due to overwhelming demand around the premiere of ‘Game of Thrones,'” the statement says. “The service has returned to several platforms and we are working hard towards full recovery, which we expect soon.”
Come on, HBO, how did you not see this coming? This was avoidable.
All men must die, but all “Game of Thrones” fans should get to watch the season premiere as soon as it’s available, right?
