Imagine what must have happened to those people who paid for Hotstar Premium services just to watch the GOT season premiere. Paying up proved to be the worst way to watch the premiere in India. At 7:30 am, the time when everyone was hitting Hotstar trying to stream the first episode, the company’s servers failed.

In no time, the matter hit Twitter and people started cursing the streaming service for this technical fault.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few days back, Hotstar had dissed illegal torrents and posted something for their viewers!

The company spent the entire morning asking customers to “clear browser cookies” to solve the problem. However, nothing worked as it was a major server fault. Poor GoT fans will never be able to forget how Hotstar ruined their bliss.

In a statement issued by Hotstar, the company’s CEO Ajit Mohan said that the service disruption was due to an unprecedented surge.

“This morning we faced an unprecedented surge in interest around the opening of the new season of ‘Game of Thrones’ which resulted in a service disruption of about 8 minutes. While we are delighted that fans around the country wholeheartedly embraced our message of Torrents Morghulis [Torrents Must Die], we are deeply apologetic for the service disruption. Service is fully up now,” reads the statement.
