The explosive, fiery season finale of “House of the Dragon” aired on HBO and HBO Max on Sunday night, and fans and critics alike are still buzzing about the episode. The Dance of Dragons has officially begun in Westeros, and audiences are already anticipating the drama and excitement that Season 2 is bound to bring.
The show has been a record-breaker for HBO and its parent company Warner Bros. Discovery. The premiere of “House of the Dragon” drew 9.986 million viewers across linear and HBO Max platforms in the U.S., the largest audience for any new original series in the history of HBO. The show has also consistently appeared in the top 10
of Nielsen’s weekly ratings.

However, HBO is currently offering a special promotion from now until Oct. 30 in which customers can save 40% off a year's subscription to HBO Max. That’s an entire year of HBO Max for just $5.83 per month, making it an excellent backup option for those who can’t access Hulu’s seven-day free trial offering.
