Neon streaming service crashes during House of the Dragon finale

Fantasy show fans Dragon House were frustrated after the Neon streaming service crashed during the season finale on Monday afternoon.

In a tweet, Neon announced that the episode was available to stream at 2:15 p.m. Monday.

However, reports from outage reporting site DownDetector said the service had already buckled under pressure as fans tuned in ahead of the final.

A sharp increase in reports was recorded at 2:12 p.m. and numbers remained high at 2:30 p.m. The issue appeared to have been resolved at 3:05 p.m.

In response to Neon’s tweet, dozens of users reported repeated error messages and crashes in the app and web platform.

Sky TV, which operates Neon, has been approached for comment.

House of the Dragon, the prequel to the wildly popular Game of Thrones, debuted on Neon and Sky’s Soho channel in August.

Centered on House Targaryen, House of the Dragon takes place 200 years before Game of Thrones. It focuses on the events leading up to the “Dance of the Dragons” – a bitter “war of succession”.
