Loyal GoT fans swarmed the streaming platforms to watch the pilot episode. Just like its predecessor, House of the Dragon has a lot of violence, gore, and uncensored sex.

House of the Dragon is set to close to 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and shows a Westeros ruled by the Targaryen dynasty at the height of its powers. The show focusses on the reign of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and the power struggles between his brother Daemon (Matt Smith), and his daughter Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock).


House of the Dragon, is the first taste of a new GOT experience inside HBO Max, and while many people trying to stream the premiere episode are watching without a problem, others said the app crashed on them, or froze up once it got past the pre-show teaser trailer.

Based on reports seen on Twitter, Reddit, and elsewhere, it appears that most of the people having problems are using an Amazon Fire TV platform, or a Fire Stick.
