Game of Thrones crashes HBO website

Game of Thrones has returned for its seventh season – and the season premiere drew such a large audience that it crashed HBO’s website.

The hit show returned to TV screens last night with an hour-long premiere to kick-start its seventh season, which aired in the US on HBO.

The opening episode of season seven was simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic in the early hours of this morning, and will be repeated on the channel tonight at 9pm.

Such was the demand, Games of Thrones’ season premiere managed to crash the network’s website – which meant that some fans were unable to watch the first half.
