Foxtel's online streaming services have crashed on the same day the seventh season of Game of Thrones was released on the platform.

In angry social media posts, fans of the HBO television show said they had tuned in to watch the new series, but were met with an error message.

Foxtel confirmed its services — including Foxtel Now, Play and the Foxtel App — were down.

"Our online team are on the case investigating the issue," a spokesman wrote on Facebook.

"The Long Night is here but hopefully it won't be much longer."

Some users said they were frustrated they had "tried to do the right thing" by paying for the streaming service, rather than downloading pirated versions.
