Game of Thrones Is the Most Pirated Show on TV

HBO’s Game of Thrones is a certified pirate magnet. Ever since the show’s early beginnings, it has led the list of most pirated shows on TV. The third season premier officially had 4.4 Million viewers with 160k watching from BitTorrent and that number is bound to rise over time. Whether legally watched or bootlegged via torrents, it’s a sure thing that Game of Thrones is one of the most popular shows on this year.

This kind of a thing is a given in today’s day and age, and as HBO said in a statement, they’ve tried to cut down on piracy by premiering the show world-wide on the same night, closing the window between the U.S. and European debuts.
