Now TV is back online after suffering an outage for some viewers.

Users of the contract-free streaming service were angered, as the issue meant they couldn't watch the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones'.

The problem was limited to viewers using laptops and desktop computers, not those watching on smartphones, tablets, games consoles, smart TVs or the Now TV Box.

It affected those using devices that feature the Intel HD Graphics 3000 video card, according to a staff member who posted on the Now TV forum. That video card is found inside some models of MacBook Pro.

Those affected could still hear sound, however, prompting one to say it was more like radio.

A Now TV spokesperson told us: "We're very sorry that some of our customers have had problems using the Now TV web player on a Mac or PC. A small number of customers were affected by this issue which we have now resolved and services are fully back up and running."

The problem was believed to have affected less than 1 per cent of Now TV viewers. Next time viewers power up their PC or Mac to watch Now TV, they will be prompted to update the Now TV web player to resolve the issue.
