Game of Thrones Destroyed the Competition & Wreaked Havoc on Streaming Services Worldwide

The season 7 opener for Game of Thrones not only managed to get it’s highest numbers ever. At 10.1 Million viewers it actually grew it’s audience by more than a million people since last year’s finale. Perhaps, one million people got caught up with the hype on HBO Go through the first half of the summer?

That’s live viewers with an HBO subscription! We aren’t even talking about all the people, in Latin America who must have signed into the HBO website in order to watch the season 7 opener only to have it crash on them! In Australia, live streamer Foxtel also reported serious problems and glitches with their service during the premiere.

If the winter Olympics are any indication, it shows the staying power of GOT. While the series will end with season 8, HBO is reportedly planning four spinoffs based on the George R.R. Martin’s extensive universe. As someone who doesn’t like the series, even I have to admit it’s probably the most powerful franchise on TV.

    My theory is that little finger is plotting to marry Sansa in a plot to build
    forces in the north ,take the iron throne but little finger tells Jon that he loves Sansa as he loved Catelyn. He’s in love with
    her but i believe that he just meant it as I love her just as much as i did Catelyn which he would
    if she was his child.
