Winter is coming -- ahead of time?

Fans have been waiting to watch the season 8 premiere of HBO's hit Game of Thrones since season 7 ended in August 2017.

But it looks like some lucky DirecTV Now customers were gifted an early glimpse at the premiere.

The first episode of Game of Thrones final season was available to DirecTV Now customers four hours early, at 5 p.m.

DirecTV did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

HBO responded but did not have information on the possible leak.
