@CraveCanada is actually a trash can.
Why do shows continue to work with this streaming service?#HouseofthedragonHBO has been trending for months. The day finally arrives, and Crave is completely unusable.
Unreal.#To really want to #game of thrones #HBO

House of Dragons launches and Crave immediately crashes nationwide. Canadian telcos, people!
So happy that we keep our incompetent monopolies afloat just because they are 🇨🇦. O Canada!

It’s unclear how many users are affected or which Crave apps are experiencing issues.
For instance, Dragon House seems to play on Crave’s iOS and Apple TV app (I’m currently watching the episode while writing this story). MobileSyrup contacted Bell for comment regarding the outage.
In the United States, the premiere of Dragon House also caused difficulties for those trying to watch the TV show through HBO Max.
Dragon House takes place two hundred years before game of thrones and follows the beginning of the end of House Targaryen.
were you able to get Dragon House stream through Crave? Let us know in the comments below.
