A surge in demand for a single episode of one program caused HBO’s online streaming service HBO GO to crash, Deadline.com reports. The crash Sunday night was triggered by users trying to access the season finale of "True Detective."
“Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we’ve been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon,” HBO GO tweeted Sunday night.
The story notes: “The disruption reaffirms ‘True Detective’s’ status of a pop culture phenomenon, which it has been able to achieve in only eight episodes.”
