Game of Thrones Season 5 has been breaking viewership records and now it has broken another record, one which HBO wont be happy to see. Game of Thrones season 5 premiere has broken the previous record for most pirated show. Here’s what Torrent Freak had to say
With the four leaked episodes and the “A Day in the Life” documentary included, [Tru Optik] found that there were 32 million downloads across 18 million IP-addresses during the first week. The first episode generated most interest and was downloaded over 13 million times, which is significantly more than last year. Interestingly, the data for the post broadcast torrent also shows that most downloaders grabbed high quality copies.
These numbers are insane and they just go on to show the popularity that is enjoyed by Game of Thrones. I bet by the time the season gets over, we are going to see that even this record has been broken.
