New Game of Thrones episode quickly spreads to piracy websites

The first episode of Game of Thrones Season 7 aired early this morning, and was quickly uploaded to various torrent websites.

Torrent sites listing the new episode included The Pirate Bay, RARBG, and, 1337X.

Episode 1 aired internationally at 03:00 SAST, and began appearing on piracy websites half an hour later.

This means a pirated version of the episode was uploaded before the episode had finished broadcasting on TV.

Game of Thrones has historically been one of the most popular downloads on piracy websites.

HBO has attempted to combat illegal downloads of the show, including sending takedown requests and appealing to ISPs to take action against piracy.

    Pirating a movie is a lot of hassle. Online services has made it in many cases cheaper and easier to own/view movies and software than downloading from torrents.

    True, but you can’t get the latest episode of GOT online legally in SA. You will have to wait a year….
