HBO Max is the streaming platform to watch all your HBO originals along with popular on-demand movies, TV shows, and documentaries. The library includes “House of the Dragon,” the prequel series to Game of Thrones. If you have a Chromecast or Chromecast-compatible Smart TV, you can use it to watch all the HBO Max content on the main screen.
