Outrage at Foxtel over Game Of Thrones season 7 blunder
WINTER finally arrived for Game of Thrones fans as the greatly-anticipated season 7 was released on Monday.
But it didn’t arrive for everyone it seems.
Foxtel NOW was a cheap option for fans to legally watch the latest season, without needing a 12-month Foxtel contract.
Their $15 per month ‘pop pack’ service promised to stream every episode at 11am, with an encore playing at 8:30pm.
But the service appeared to experience problems due to “unprecedented demand”, angering thousands of people across Australia.
@FOXTEL_Help I pay good money to watch foxtel and the god damn game of thrones won’t play wtf? I should just cancel my subscription!!!!
