HBO Max next month (August 2022) plans to add 100 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including a new show based on a fantasy novel by George R.R. Martin, and a significant update to a Martin-inspired series.

The new titles will include House of the Dragon, a new HBO original series co-created by Martin and based loosely on his 2018 novel, Fire & Blood. Set 200 years before Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon chronicles the rise and fall of the House Targaryen and the bloody succession that occurs after its demise.

HBO Max will offer House of the Dragon in 4K HDR as well as Dolby Atmos audio.

And speaking of 4K and Martin, HBO Max in August plans to make all eight seasons of Game of Thrones available in the format as well as Dolby Atmos. The streamer has not disclosed the exact date for the switch over but Game of Thrones has only been available in high-def on HBO Now until now. (You can buy Game of Thrones on 4K Blu-ray.)

Those are two pretty good reasons why 4K TV owners might want to invest in an HBO Max subscription for the month of August.

Here is the complete list of new titles coming in August 2022 to HBO Max. (Shows with HBO in parenthesis are also available on the pay TV version of HBO.)
