A spokesman for AT&T, which owns the service, said: “Apparently our system was excited as we were for Game of Thrones tonight and gave a few DirecTV Now customers early access to the episode by mistake.” Immediately fixed it and we look forward to tuning in this evening. “

“At least we’re not dealing with people flat-out stealing episodes like we saw in a breach a few years ago, but this is not great either.”
