“House of the Dragon” Season Finale Leaked Online
by Emily Nagle
Just two days before the “House of the Dragon” season 1 finale premieres on HBO and HBO Max, the episode has been leaked online.
HBO is “disappointed” and will be “aggressively monitoring” the Internet to ensure that copies of the episode stop circulating. An HBO spokesperson said of the matter, “This unlawful action has disrupted the viewing experience for loyal fans of the show, who will get to see a pristine version of the episode when it premieres Sunday on HBO and HBO Max, where it will stream exclusively in 4K.”
They added that the leak apparently came from a distribution partner in Europe, the Middle East or Africa. While this is the first time “House of the Dragon” has been leaked, its predecessor “Game of Thrones” often fell victim to piracy, getting leaked on social media as well as through distribution partners like DirecTV Now.
