Game of Thrones seizes pirate crown for 4th year running

With an estimated 14.4 million downloads via BitTorrent, Game of Thrones has been declared the most downloaded TV show for the fourth year running.

The Walking Dead and Big Bang Theory complete the top three with an estimated 6.9 and 4.4 million downloads respectively.

Game of Thrones’ top listing doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Earlier this year it broke an all-time piracy record when more than 258,131 peers shared the same torrent file simultaneously.

According to TorrentFreak, pirates are showing a growing interest in quality, even though 480p copies of TV-shows remain the most popular.
