Foxtel Now bombs again for PS4 users streaming Game of Thrones

Brodie Fogg 14 August 2017 NEWS


The latest hiccup seems to be exclusive to PS4 users and the latest episode of Thrones.

Another week, another storm of fiery rage from prospective Foxtel Now users. This time around, it's not everyone being deprived of the latest episode of Thrones, just PlayStation 4 users. If you booted up the PS4 after a long day of wondering who tackled Jamie off the horse last week or if that wannabe shish kebab even made it out of the lake, you would be sorely disappointed to find the following message.


PSAVsceAvPlayerAddSourceEx is actually Westerosi for "no dice".

That message only appears when you try and play the latest episode and only on PlayStation 4. The PS4 will play any other episode, Thrones or not, just fine and the Foxtel Now PC and Mac app seems to play the latest episode no problem.

Game of Thrones review

There's a somewhat helpful thread over on Foxtel's website (thanks to the community) that suggests some people have had luck by signing in and out again or closing the application and opening it again. That didn't work for us. It doesn't seem to be working for most.

Foxtel's only answer in the thread so far is to catch it via the live television tab in the Foxtel Now app when Game of Thrones airs on the Showcase channel at 8:30 PM.

Otherwise, here are all the times you can catch this week's episode on Showcase:


  • showcase: 8:30pm - 9:35pm
  • showcase +2: 10:30pm - 11:35pm


  • showcase HD: 4:35am - 5:40am
  • showcase: 4:35am - 5:40am
  • showcase +2: 6:35am - 7:40am
