HBO’s main website crashed during the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” Sunday night.
The long-awaited season seven premiere was cut short for some East Coast viewers who were watching on HBO.com and some reported that HBO Now and HBO Go, the network’s streaming service, were also malfunctioning, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Social media users wrote to HBO on Twitter to express their disbelief and frustrations.
“Really @HBO. You really weren’t prepared for everybody and their mom to be on HBO GO for this premiere when this has happened before? Typical,” one Twitter user wrote.
An HBO spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter that HBO GO “was experiencing outages in Latin America on Sunday and that the team in the region was working to resolve the problems.” The spokesperson said that HBO had not received any reports of HBO Go and HBO Now malfunctioning in the America.
