How popular was the “GoT” premiere last night? The website crashed big time.
You probably didn’t know, but Latin America pretty much missed out on the show. HBO.com failed to load when the show began, resulting in a simple error page. HBO Now, the cable channel's streaming service, was also down for some viewers.
You would think the cable channel would have learned after the same thing happened during the Season 6 finale.
Fans of the show have taken to Twitter to show their displeasure. You can see some below.
There was more controversy with the premier as well for those who did see it. Pop star Ed Sheeran made a cameo and sang a song
Twitter had thoughts on that as well.
