House of the Dragon episode 1 has leaked on torrent sites and other networks that allow piracy, in different versions of quality and file size (from 262MB to 2.29GB). While most copies of the Game of Thrones prequel series are arguably genuine, given the attached screenshots and user comments attesting to their legitimacy, some are fraudulent and only exist as a trap. to load viruses and malware onto the computers of unsuspecting individuals. And because House of the Dragon is released directly online — available on HBO Max and Disney+ Hotstar — genuine pirated copies have good video and audio quality. Gadgets 360 does not condone illegal file sharing. It’s against the law and filmmakers deserve to be paid for the content they create.
House of the Dragon review: Game of Thrones is back – and it’s awesome
The first leaked legitimate version of House of the Dragon episode 1 appeared on torrent sites at around 8:20am IST on Sunday, August 21 – nearly 24 hours before release – in Full HD 1080p resolution and surround sound. (House of the Dragon airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO Max wherever available and at 6:30 a.m. IST on Disney+ Hotstar in India.) High-definition piracy is an ongoing problem for TV shows, as they are more easily recorded than movies on the big screen. Plus, Game of Thrones is no stranger to leaks. For what it’s worth, House of the Dragon will also be available in 4K HDR – at least on HBO Max – but there’s no leaked 4K version at the time of writing.
Created by Ryan Condal (Colony) and George RR Martin – the latter is the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the series of books that were adapted into Game of Thrones, which lasts eight seasons – House of the Dragon is preparing 200 years before its parent series.

Unlike Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon will roll out multiple time jumps during its 10-episode first season, with the cast also swapping roles over the course of the season. The Thrones spin-off could take on an anthology format from season 2.
