The dragon era has arrived, and we're here to enjoy it. House of the Dragon, the critically acclaimed prequel series to Game of Thrones, launched on HBO Max on August 21.

Fans of the beloved parent series flocked to the studios' streaming service to watch the highly anticipated prequel, as expected. However, it appears that the streamer was not quite prepared to take on all of people tuning in to fly with House Targaryen.

By the time the series premiere was available to be streamed, many subscribers complained of not being able to have access to the first episode.  

This encouraged many people to seek assistance in resolving the problem. The HBO Max Twitter help account, @HBOMaxHelp, was inundated with subscribers and viewers requesting assistance.

HBO released a statement regarding the issue, stating that the crash, which reportedly affected some 3,000 viewers seemed to affect only individuals who were using Amazon devices to stream. 

The precise amount of how many users were affected by the crash is unknown; nevertheless, HBO Max is not afraid of such a circumstance, having faced similar difficulties in the latter seasons of the original series.
