It’s one of the most popular shows on premium cable, and “Game Of Thrones” destroyed HBO Go with its Season Four premiere.

Last night (April 6) HBO tried to appease angry subscribers with a series of tweets promising to fix the issue as soon as possible.

The network tweeted, "Looks like there's trouble in the realm. Apologies for the inconvenience. We'll be providing updates, so please stay tuned. #GameofThrones."

"Having trouble accessing @HBO GO? Send a raven. @GameOfThrones will be available soon on HBO On Demand with some cable providers,” they added along with, "We're sorry for all of the trouble, but if you're an @HBO subscriber, the @GameOfThrones premiere replays at 11 PM EST.”

Finally, HBO Go reported, "HBO Go did experience issues due to overwhelming demand around the premiere of Game of Thrones. The service has returned to several platforms and we are working hard towards full recovery, which we expect soon."

"Game of Thrones" stars Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington.
