The "Game of Thrones" Season 7 premiere broke *these


As HBO is reportedly unwilling to give its content partners access to its shows before they've premiered globally, Game of Thrones must be streamed centrally from the US HBO servers.

One man said by failing fans in their time of dire need: "Foxtel has likely extended Australia's status as a leader in online piracy for years". The show got its biggest overnight audience ever so as a result the season premiere has become the show's most-watched episode in the overnight ratings. Twitter has been going insane ever since the show aired and most of it are positive reviews about the show.

"It's most unfortunate and we apologise to those affected".

"Due to unprecedented demand, we are experiencing problems with our online services this evening", Foxtel said in a statement on Facebook at 9 p.m. AEST.

The 31-year-old also won the Australian and US Open men's doubles titles in 2016. "I'm really pleased I contacted Jamie before Wimbledon".

The high number of viewers trying to watch Game of Thrones' seventh season premiere caused global outages of streaming services from HBO and Foxtel. Foxtel is the exclusive rights holder in Australia for Game of Thrones, and is the only legal way to watch the popular drama.

"We assure anyone impacted that they will be able to watch the first episode of Season 7 either On Demand or via one of our encore screenings throughout the week", he said. According to PTI, the users who tried to visit HBO.Com saw an error message displayed, which read there was a problem loading the page, reports Hollywood Reporter. We will witness Jon and Dany's realization of their true relationship, and find out if Littlefinger has any meaningful leverage left now that Sansa has seen him for what he really is. Now, the over-the-top streaming service, also didn't load for some people during the first half.

The episode drew 16.1 million total viewers in the USA on Sunday night local time, including 10.1 million who watched on the linear channel and the rest coming from DVR and streaming.
