For several years in a row Game of Thrones has been the most pirated TV-show, and this year the interest is once again overwhelming.
Game of Thrones has the honor of becoming the most-downloaded TV show through BitTorrent for the fifth year in a row.
This means that its half-decade reign remains unchallenged, despite reports to the contrary.
Although there was no new swarm record, traffic-wise the interest was roughly on par with last year. The highest number of people actively sharing an episode across several torrents was 350,000 at its peak, this was right after the season finale came online.
Game Of Thrones wraps its eight-season run in 2018, with plans for a spinoff/sequel series already in motion.
Will Game Of Thrones end its run as the most pirated TV show ever? Will the spinoff series assume the illegal download crown? Would this positively or negatively impact that show’s survival odds? Stay tuned…
