Tonight is the season finale of the hit HBO series True Detective and thanks the advancements in technology we’ve experienced over the years, fans have the ability to live stream the episode on mobile devices thanks to HBO Go.
Well, that was the plan at least. Minutes into the finale episode of True Detective, the HBO Go servers became overloaded with users and crashed in a large majority of the country and around the world.
Needless to say, fans watching on HBO Go were not tickled.
