NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones have grown accustomed to heartbreak, but this one may have proven too much to bear.

The network's streaming service HBO Go crashed in the middle of Season Four's premiere on Sunday night as the system was flooded by demand.

HBO, a division of Time Warner Inc (TWX), said the service interruption was due to overwhelming demand and tweeted apologies to affected subscribers.

HBO Go continued to tweet throughout the outage, before notifying the majority of the network was running as normal around 11:40 EST. 

This isn't the first time HBO Go has had issues keeping up with subscribers' appetite, though. In March, the service crashed during HBO's screening of the True Detective finale.

STOCKS TO BUY: TheStreet Quant Ratings has identified a handful of stocks that can potentially TRIPLE in the next 12 months. Learn more.

TheStreet Ratings team rates TIME WARNER INC as a Buy with a ratings score of A. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate TIME WARNER INC (TWX) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, increase in stock price during the past year and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income."
