The world’s most pirated TV show is likely to hold on to that claim, possibly set higher benchmarks. Four episodes of Game of Thrones, which begins its fifth season this month have leaked online on torrent websites.
The leak is likely a review copy sent to the press, reports Torrentfreak, adding that the videos have been downloaded over 100,000 times in three hours.
As TechCrunch points out, this won’t augur too well for HBO’s standalone streaming service, HBO Now, now that it’s behind the internet by a full month. Watch out for spoilers ahead.
