HBO Now goes down during ‘Game of Thrones’

Game of Thrones - HBO Now

Game of Thrones viewers went ballistic on Sunday night after HBO Go experienced an outage during the live airing of the popular series.

The outage quickly led to anger as fans of the show took to social media to vent their frustrations.

“I expect a FULL refund! This is completely unacceptable !!” tweeted @bobbinewman.

“We’re aware members are experiencing technical difficulties tonight. We hope to resolve this ASAP,” HBO Now’s official twitter handle tweeted to users.

Some customers were angry that it took HBO so long to tweet about its technical difficulties.

“IT TOOK 43 MINUTES TO TWEET THIS,” wrote @killian_13 on Twitter.

HBO sent a tweet at 10 p.m. ET that “successful streaming has resumed across all devices.”

Despite that tweet, many HBO users complained of continued problems with the service.

HBO Now was launched in 2015. The service allows customers to buy an HBO subscription without having to pay for cable.
