‘House of the Dragon’ now available on Showmax

Showmax has announced that subscribers will be able to enjoy ‘House of the Dragon’ on their platform. The HBO show which is a prequel to the hit series ‘Game of Thrones’ premiered last weekend, breaking records with over 10 million watching the premiere episode.

Episodes will be available on a weekly basis after the show goes live on HBO. The show is based on author George RR Martin’s book Fire & Blood and chronicles the history of House Targaryen.

Remember though Showmax only streams in 720p maximum, so no 4K and no HDR quality. Which could be an issue should you want to stream through your TV. Especially with a huge show like this which streams in 4K HDR.

Game of Thrones remains one of the most binge-watched series of all time on Showmax, and House of the Dragon takes place 200 years before the cataclysmic events, a time when the Targaryen family reigned supreme with fearsome dragons as their enforcers.

Paddy Considine (Peaky BlindersThe Outsider) plays King Viserys I, while Sian Brooke (Sherlock) plays Queen Aemma. Matt Smith (The Crown) is Prince Daemon Targaryen, the younger brother to the king, a fierce warrior and dragonrider, while relative newcomer Emma D’Arcy (Truth Seekers) plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, who is in awe of Prince Daemon and all that he does.

Fans can also expect to meet members of the House of Velaryon, who dominate the seas. Lord Corlys Velaryon (also known as the Sea Snake) is played by the enigmatic Steve Toussaint (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time). Rounding up the royal dynasties is House Hightower, with Olivia Cooke and Rhys Ifans starring.
