Recently aired season 5 finale of HBO‘s Game of Thrones has broken ANOTHER record. Just this morning we reported that it broke a TV viewing record when it pulled an audience of 8.1 million viewers.
In addition to that, the shocking finale also set a new piracy record as, according to Torrent Freak, it was downloaded over 1.5 million times within 8 hours of its airing.
“Never before have we seen this many downloads in such a short period of time, and last year it took half a day to reach the same number. Based on this figure, the download count is expected to increase to more than 10 million during the days to come,” the publication dedicated to bringing the latest news about copyright, privacy, and everything related to file sharing said.
The lower quality 480p copies of the show was the most popular among downloaders, followed by 720p and 1080p copies respectively.
