Game of Thrones fans – we know you have been holding your breath since it was announced that HBO plans to do a prequel series around the Targaryen family. So, fret not, as it is nearly here.
‘House of the Dragon’ in Saudi Arabia is set to air on Monday August 22, simultaneously with the US premiere. The HBO Original drama will be available exclusively on OSN+, the region’s leading streaming service for premium entertainment, with new episodes dropping weekly on the platform.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s ‘Fire & Blood’, the ten-episode series is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and tells the story of House Targaryen. If you haven’t seen all of the Games of Thrones, you can still tune in to the prequel to one of the most successful series of the past decade.
Buckle up for a 1,000-drone airborne light show
What’s more, OSN+ and HBO will be celebrating the premiere of ‘House of the Dragon’ with an immersive drone show and screen takeover that will light up the Riyadh skyline on Thursday August 18.

The gaming festival will provide an engaging and immersive platform to celebrate the premiere of the first episode of the Game of Thrones prequel with fans, both within the Saudi Arabian capital and across the Kingdom”, said Ashley Rite, VP, Marketing & Growth at OSN+.
