Adaptations of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead placed high on the list of the most pirated TV shows last season.
The HBO adaptation of George RR Martin‘s Game of Thrones series has been named the Most Pirated TV Show of the Season by TorrentFreak. The website counted an estimated 5,200,000 downloads per single episode on public BitTorrent trackers, compared to the 5,500,000 estimated viewers for an episode on HBO. The real piracy numbers are hard to calculate as online storage lockers and other services are also used by pirates.
