“Game of Thrones” was the most popular television series at one point in time. The HBO fantasy series had got millions of viewers hooked on their screens. HBO capitalized on the success and announced a prequel, “House of the Dragon.”
The much-anticipated prequel to GoT recently premiered on the streaming app and caused a little trouble for some subscribes, who complained the app crashed when they tried to stream the latest television sensation.
According to Deadline, @HBOMaxHelp Twitter account was experiencing a lot of traffic as subscribers tried to stream House of Dragon. It is not known how widespread the issue has been.
House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood.” The series, set 200 years before the events of “Game of Thrones,” tells the story of the House of Targaryen.
HBO spent over $100 million on House of the Dragon’s marketing campaign, with the majority of that money comprised of a combination of ad spot value and real money spent.
