The fourth episode of Hard Knocks: Training Camp With The Oakland Raiders premiered on Monday night on HBO and all it’s streaming services. For many, the episode will be remembered as the one where Jon Gruden gave fans a catchphrase that will turn into a meme that will never get old. Knock on wood if you’re with me.
Then there were the people who had been waiting all day for Monday night so they could stream Hard Knocks on HBO GO and HBO NOW. 10pm Eastern came and went and Hard Knocks was nowhere to be seen. Specifically, online. Media and media partners took notice.
Earlier in the evening, HBO warned subscribers the show wouldn’t be available on time. Still, 11pm came and went and the nightmare continued.
The show was finally available a few minutes later, but some people had already given up waiting or decided to cancel their subscriptions. The final episode of the season will air and stream at its regular time next. The question is, will anyone be around to watch?
