HBO might want to call up Netflix to get some tips for how to deal with heavy streaming demand for incredibly popular television series. It seems that HBO Go, the video streaming service available to HBO subscribers, crashed on Sunday night amid huge demand for the premiere of the fourth season of Game of Thrones. HBO acknowledged the problem shortly after 9 p.m. on Sunday and said that HBO subscribers should check to see whether the show would be available through HBO On Demand on their cable service. HBO also reminded frustrated viewers that they could catch a repeat of the episode at 11:00 p.m. on HBO proper. It’s somewhat surprising that HBO has seemingly underestimated demand for the Game of Thrones premiere, especially since the show is the single most-pirated television show in the world and since HBO itself has encouraged HBO subscribers to share their HBO Go account log-ins with their cord-cutting friends who don’t subscribe to the channel.Tags:HBO GoSource:Twitter (HBO) Previous ArticlePreviousHTC's revenue finally rises in March, but can't stop Q1 loss TrendingU.S. wireless carriers finally have something to fear: GoogleHTC One (M8) vs. Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5s: Guess which phone survives a 7-foot dropMoto’s next flagship may have a leather backHTC One (M8) review: The smartphone that changes everything… again5 more great Android apps that do amazing things the iPhone can’tHBO Go crashes amid huge demand for Game of Thrones premiereRelated ArticlesHBO GO crumbles in the wake of 'True Detective' finaleHBO Go available on the PlayStation 3 starting todayDon't bother subscribing, HBO wants you to use your friends' HBO Go loginsA cord cutter's dream come true: Comcast offers HBO without cable serviceApple TV now supports HBO GO and WatchESPN
