HBO has today released a brand new full-length trailer for one of the most anticipated television events of the year House of the Dragon, the prequel to Game of Thrones.

Based on George R.R. Martin’s fantasy novel Fire & Blood, the series, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.

The highly anticipated series will be available to stream at the same time as the U.S. via Foxtel and Binge from Monday 22 August with new episodes added weekly.

The star-studded ensemble cast includes Paddy Considine (The Third Day), Matt Smith (The Crown), Olivia Cooke (Ready Player One), Emma D’Arcy (Truth Seekers), Steve Toussaint (Doctor Who), Eve Best (Nurse Jackie), Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina), Fabien Frankel (The Serpent) and Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill). 

The series also features Australian stars Milly Alcock (Upright) as Young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ryan Corr (Packed to the Rafters) as Ser Harwin ‘Breakbones’ Strong. 

FOXTEL will exclusively premiere the new series in 4K Ultra HD, bringing this year’s biggest television event to Australia in 4x the resolution of HD and with enhanced Dolby Digital sound.

As part of the celebration, Foxtel has recently confirmed it will air the complete back catalogue of GAME OF THRONES in 4K Ultra HD ahead of the anticipated new prequel series. In vivid & life-like clarity, fans will be closer than ever before to the deception, destruction and deaths in all 73 episodes over eight seasons of the world’s most popular series.

FOXTEL continues to invest in 4K Ultra HD technology and innovation to unlock the most immersive and intense viewing experience just as consumer trends show ownership of 4K Ultra HD TVs skyrocketing and projected to be in the majority of all households within two years.

This year FOXTEL has doubled the amount of live hours in 4K Ultra HD available across sport – increasing to more than 200 hours – making it the largest broadcaster of 4K Ultra HD content in Australia, and now the home of one of the most popular entertainment franchises in 4K Ultra HD – HOUSE OF THE DRAGON.

Hilary Perchard, Chief Customer, Marketing and Revenue Officer at FOXTEL, said:

“FOXTEL brought GAME OF THRONES to Australia and helped it become one of the most watched series of the decade.

“We’re thrilled to be the exclusive broadcaster of HOUSE OF THE DRAGON in 4K Ultra HD in Australia, putting fans right in the action with the most intense and immersive viewing experience available.

“This is just the beginning for 4K Ultra HD viewing on FOXTEL, we’re committed to bringing the best quality viewing experience across sport and entertainment to our nearly 2 million subscribers.”
