HBO GO

Many of you have wanted it for a long, long time now, and today HBO made it official: a standalone cable-free HBO GO service will be made available at some point in 2015.

This of course means that instead of having Comcast or another cable provider and paying extra for HBO—a current requirement in order to use HBO GO and watch your favorite shows and movies on your tablet or gaming console and so on—you’ll soon have the option to pay a certain fee just to use HBO GO. Ideal for those of you watch Game of Thrones on a loop all day every day. Don’t judge! I’m studying the symbolism, and counting snowflakes…because math!

True Detective Season 1 finale Marty and Rust on the computer

We knew the Season 1 finale of True Detective would be bringing in a lot of viewers, as HBO has been teasing that the episode would reveal the identity of “The Yellow King” ritualistic serial killer. But what HBO apparently didn’t anticipate is that the popularity of this eighth and final episode of the season would cause its streaming service, HBO GO, to crash.

The season finale aired on HBO on Sunday night at 9pm and by 9:50pm, the HBO GO Twitter account had posted a status about their service being affected: “Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we’ve been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon.”
