Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few years I’m sure you are well aware of the popular HBO tv show Game of Thrones. HBO is typically available as a premium subscription on top of a traditional cable tv subscription. Most subscribers also get access to HBO GO, which allows them to watch content on the web and through HBO GO apps. Viewer demand caused the service to crash Sunday night during the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones. Over 6.6 million people tuned in, making it the largest viewership for HBO since since The Sopranos series finale in 2007. Last month, HBO Go was also overwhelmed and became largely unusable during the season finale of True Detective.
While there is a HBO GO app for the Xbox 360 there is not one currently not available for the Xbox One. The reason behind this is currently unknown and whether it is HBO or Microsoft behind the holdup. Luckily for Xbox One users, the season premiere is coming to Xbox Video and will be available to stream for free starting from tomorrow through April 14.

A little of topic here, but did anyone watch the premiere of “Silicon Valley” or “Turn?” I thought Silicon Valley was terrible and “Turn” seemed like it had potential. Oh and GoT was great as usual. Share your comments below.
