Game of Thrones Finale sets Record for Most Illegal Downloads

HBO has roughly 5.4 million subscribers. However, many more than 5.4 million people have seen last season’s Game of Thrones finale. How? Illegal Downloads. But this is nothing new for Game of Thrones, which hit 4.28 million downloads with one episode in 2012, topping all other pirated shows, according to TorrentFreak. This record has since been broken…by Game of Thrones. In fact, the Game of Thrones season three finale set the record for the most illegal downloads for a single episode. During the first 24 hours after the episode aired, more than 1 million people illegally downloaded the show on BitTorrent, shattering all previous records.
