If you are also wondering where and how to watch House of the Dragons in India, then you have come to the right place. In India, House of the Dragons will be released on the Disney+ Hotstar OTT platform. You can thus watch the upcoming series House of the Dragon on the Disney+ Hotstar app or website. Just like Game of Thrones was released on Disney+ Hotstar, House of the Dragon will also release on the same platform. This is due to the programming deal that was inked in 2015 between HBO and Fox Star India. The deal said that all the HBO shows will exclusively air on Star India platforms until 2025. This is the reason why Game of Thrones aired and House of the Dragons will air exclusively on the Disney+ Hotstar platform in India. (Check out Disney+ Hotstar Plans and Pricing)
