Game of Thrones was the year’s most pirated TV show… again

40 sec read

HBO’s Game of Thrones is probably one of the biggest hits on TV these days. In fact last year we had heard that the TV show was a top torrent download but with 2014 bringing us new TV shows to watch, did Game of Thrones lose its steam? Hardly. According to a report from TorrentFreak, it looks like Game of Thrones has nabbed the crown of the most pirated TV show for 2014.

Game of Thrones has taken the crown of most downloaded TV-show for the third consecutive year. With more than 8 million downloads via BitTorrent, the 2014 season finale is way ahead of the competition. Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead complete the top three with an estimated 4.2 and 3.6 million downloads respectively. Game of Thrones’ top listing doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Earlier this year it broke an all-time piracy record when more than 254,114 peers shared the same torrent file simultaneously. Overall there is no sign that TV-show piracy is declining, on the contrary. The download numbers for the most popular shows continues to rise, sometimes exceeding the number of traditional viewers in the US.
