The watch party, broadcasted last August 22nd through Webedia Spain’s official Twitch channel, elstream, was hosted by the talents and streamers Alexby11 —with more than 3 million followers on this platform—, Mery Soldier (María Soldado) and Leviathan (Sandra Cabeza). A show in style, with the presence of both physical guests and virtual followers, worthy of one of the most anticipated series of the year. Dracarys!
On August 22, in an unmissable event for both fans and enthusiasts of ‘Games of Thrones’, Webedia Spain celebrated through its official Twitch channel, elstream, a watch party of the first episode of ‘House of the Dragon’, a HBO Max blockbuster, based on George R.R. Martin’s literary work ‘Fire and Blood’ and, in turn, a stunning prequel set 200 years before the original fiction that concluded last 2019.
The meeting, which lasted about two hours and aimed to present the origins of the complex and proud Targaryen family long before the birth of Daenerys Stormborn, had the well-known talent and streamer Alexby11 as master of ceremonies —with more than 3 million followers on Twitch—, who was also accompanied by Mery Soldier (María Soldado) and Leviathan (Sandra Cabeza), who even showed for the first time during the broadcast the new exclusive collection of clothes based on the series by Stradivarius (Inditex).
The watch party created for one of the most anticipated series of the year was designed so that ‘Game of Thrones’ lovers could follow it in two ways: in person, on the best set of Webedia Spain located in the center of Madrid, and also virtually through Twitch, for which users who were at home had to be previously subscribed to HBO Max to be able to comment in real time everything that happened in ‘The Heirs of the Dragon’, the first episode of this prequel.
For the on-site modality, Webedia Spain started announcing the watch party three weeks before the event with content published on its main websites, so that those interested could sign up for a place by filling out a simple form. But that was not all, as in the days leading up to the watch party all the group’s capacities were geared towards promoting such an event with a scandalous preview phase. All to conclude with the D-Day, with a premium presence in the media involved to generate follow-up, and also days later, with the production of a video with the best moments.
The premiere of ‘House of the Dragon’, created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal for HBO and with Condal and Miguel Sapochnik as showrunners, has made history for HBO Max by reaching 10 million viewers, the highest figure in the network’s history. For the moment, and among others, the main characters of the series are King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine), Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith), Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) and Lady Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke). Due to its overwhelming success, ‘House of the Dragon’ has been renewed for a second season just five days after its premiere.
