How to Watch ‘House of the Dragon’ Season 2 Online

In Season 1, House of the Dragon introduced us to Targaryen, Hightower, and Velaryon families — all hungry for a spot on or around the Iron Throne. The series, based on George R.R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood, is set about 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones. Season 2 will undoubtedly expand the ensemble cast and, reportedly, several new dragons.

Below is everything you need to know about House of the Dragon Season 2, including where to watch the Game of Thrones spin-off and when to expect new episodes.

How to Watch House of the Dragon Online

House of the Dragon is an HBO exclusive, so you’ll need a Max subscription to stream the series online. If you’re already a subscriber, head here to watch House of the Dragon.

If you’re not a Max subscriber, you’ve got a few ways to sign up. Max offers three subscription tiers: With Ads, Ad-Free, and Ultimate Ad-Free. The Max With Ads plan costs $9.99 a month and lets your account stream on up to two devices simultaneously, but has ad breaks in all content. The Ad-Free plan removes those ads for $15.99 a month, and lets you download content for offline viewing. The top-tier Ultimate Ad-Free costs $19.99 a month and lets you stream on up to four devices at the same time, download up to 100 titles, and stream with better image and sound quality on select titles. See Max deals here.

Another way to get a Max subscription is through Amazon Prime Video. You can add a Max With Ads or Max Ad-Free plan to your existing Prime Video subscription, which can be a good way to consolidate your streaming setup (and bill). Pricing is the same as through the Max website

All of the above options will let you watch House of the Dragon Season 2 when it releases, and stream House of the Dragon Season 1 and all of Game of Thrones.
