HBO says its streaming service is running again, although disappointingly late for many anxious fans of the “True Detective” series.
Most fans who tried to log onto the “HBO GO” stream for the Sunday-night season finale of “True Detective” weren’t able to do so because the service crashed. HBO said Monday the service interruption was due to “an excessive amount of traffic” soon after the 9 p.m. Eastern start of the episode. Many viewers saw a spinning circle indicating the show was loading, but it didn’t.
HBO had similar issues with its service last year surrounding episodes of “Game of Thrones.”
Company spokesman Jeff Cusson (KEW-sahn) said Monday the service is now working.
