If you’re a subscriber of DirecTV Now, the season eight premiere of Game of Thrones has arrived early.
Whether intentional or not, the episode is streaming on DirecTV Now as of 5:30 p.m. EST — three and a half hours ahead of its HBO premiere at 9:00 p.m.
Former Obama speechwriter Cody Keenan was among the first to point out the episode’s early release, as he received a notification from DirecTV about the episode’s availability. Several other DirecTV users have shared screen grabs of the episode.
Needless to say, if you’re hoping to avoid spoilers, now would be a good time to sign off the Internet.
Update: A representative for AT&T, which owns DirecTV, said in a statement, “Apparently our system was as excited as we are for Game of Thrones tonight and gave a few DirecTV Now customers early access to the episode by mistake. When we became aware of the error, we immediately fixed it and we look forward to tuning in this evening.” It’s worth noting that AT&T owns HBO.
