So many fans tried to watch the finale of the first season of True Detective that the service HBO Go crashed. Naturally, this made fans unable to watch the last episode of their favorite television show.
HBO Go is a popular service, as it airs episodes in real time. Users can access the service with login and password. However, reports reveal that there were so many logins during the time when True Detective aired that the service crashed.
HBO Go knew about the problem almost immediately and tried to have it solved as fast as possible. “Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we’ve been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon,” HBO tweeted as soon as they realized that fans of True Detective were unable to watch the television series.
However, fans were surely disappointed. Some even named the service HBO No Go and claimed to have watched the last episode of True Detective on TV. The final episode of the first season of the series was quite different from what fans could see in the previous episodes. The episode was aired by HBO on Sunday.
True Detective is a highly successful series for HBO. In fact, this is the second most popular television series after the highly expected series Game of Thrones, which is set to begin its new season next month. Well, the finale of Season one of True Detective was watched by more than 11 million people.
True Detective stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, being created by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. The show is based on a murder investigation that lasts no less than 17 years. Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey already said that he will not be returning for the second season of True Detective. McConaughey plays the role of Rustin Cohle, a police investigator in the television series.
In case you missed the finale you should know that it is available via HBO On-Demand. Having under consideration its success, the show is very likely to get renewed for a second season, although nothing has been revealed until now.
