(Newser) Game of Thrones fans freaked out last night when they had technical trouble watching the season four premier on HBO Go. Viewers made their concerns heard online, and HBO responded—in what Brian Barrett notes was a rather sassy tweet. "Having trouble accessing @HBO GO? Send a raven," the company said. The subscription channel was right not to worry much, Barrett writes at Gizmodo: Those complaining "are the moochers, the people who are using their cousin's ex-girlfriend's dad's HBO Go password instead of forking over 16 bucks a month to watch it on their televisions."

"I have nothing against mooching," Barrett notes. But "when it's a thing you did not pay for but did help break," you lose "your right to complain." Click for the full piece.

I was watching it and DVRing it at the same time and had 2 major glitches. I pay for HBO. Had I not been home nd came home to see my recording 1/2 gone I would have been extremely pissed off.
