Whether the “leak” was intentional or not, DirecTV subscribers received a notification around 5:30 p.m. EST stating the Season 8 Game Of Thrones premiere was now available.

Former Obama speechwriter Cody Keenan took to Twitter to point out the unexpected alert.

“Four hours early? I’ll take it,” he tweets.


However, don’t get your hopes up. Subscribers who recently went to view the episode have noticed that it’s no longer available.
