Sunday night’s celebrated Breaking Bad finale, which burst cable network ATM’s ratings record, was also the show’s most pirated installment, according to TorrenFreak, who published the remarkable statistic that 500,000 copies had been downloaded within the first twelve hours of the first illegal copy appearing online, adding that 18 per cent of the show’s pirated downloaded came from Australia, 14.5 per cent from the US and 9.3 per cent from the UK.

HBO’s Game of Thrones still holds the record for generrating the highest BitTorrent traffic ever, however, with more than 170,000 people sharing a single copy at once
