Game of Thrones

HBO's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' TV Show


Most Pirated Show of the Year

Last year, Game of Thrones was reported to be the #2 most pirated television show according to TorrentFreak.

And now this year? It has the ambiguous honor of now being the #1 most pirated show according to the same site, which claims its overall pirated viewership has gone from 3.4 million downloads to 4.28 million downloads. The New York Times’s Dave Itzkoff points out that, according to TorrentFreak, some 80% of all the piracy they’re tracking is outside of the US—basically in those regions where the show is unavailable or not available roughly concurrently with US air dates.
