Game Of Thrones Leak Of Season 5
Warning! If you hate Game Of Thrones spoilers, you might want to keep your head down and your WIFI disconnected for the next month or so.
But don’t worry; this article is totally SPOILER FREE!
Rumors of the leak started circulating on the afternoon of the 11th; by 6 p.m., the files started appearing across hundreds of torrent tracker sites. In just a few hours after, over 50,000 people downloaded or streamed the first episode.
Game Of Thrones is already the world’s most pirated show. This snafu probably won’t help it lose that title.
Similar to each season before it, Season 5 of Thrones will consist of 10 episodes. With this, nearly half of the season has leaked before the first episode even got a chance to officially air.
While not as awful as having the entire season leaked, I imagine some pretty harsh words are being said at the HBO offices right now.
HBO carefully timed the launch of their new, long-awaited standalone streaming service, HBO Now, around the premiere of the Season 5 premiere.
And now, their new service is going to be behind the web pirates by a full month.
