July 17 (UPI) -- Some people waiting for the Game of Thrones season premiere had to wait a little longer Sunday night as the HBO website crashed during the first 30 minutes of the show.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, HBO.com failed to load when the show began, resulting in a simple error page. HBO Now, the cable channel's streaming service, was also down for some viewers.

The problems appeared to hit viewers in Latin America the hardest, while U.S. viewers didn't appear to experience widespread outages.

"You had one job #HBOGO, one job we are a few hours away from #GoTS7 premiere and you are down already!" tweeted a Uruguay-based fan. "Fix the servers! @HBO."

The HBO servers also went down during the Game of Thrones Season 6 finale. With another iteration of technical difficulties during the cable channel's most popular show, some fans poked fun at HBO.
