“Game of Thrones” nabs the No. 1 spot on TorrentFreak’s list of 2012’s most-pirated TV shows.
The HBO drama, pictured above with Peter Dinklage, was downloaded more than 4 million times, and was especially popular in Australia, according to the site.
Showtime’s “Dexter,” which occupied the top spot last year, fell to No. 2.
TorrentFreak notes that about 80% of TV piracy occurs outside the United States, and it’s mostly fueled by a lack of availability of such shows.
Here are the 10 most-pirated TV shows this year, according to TorrentFreak:
1. “Game of Thrones”
3. “The Big Bang Theory”
4. “How I Met Your Mother”
5. “Breaking Bad”
6. “The Walking Dead”
It is appropriate time to make a few plans for the long run and it is time to be happy. I've read this publish and if I could I want to recommend you some fascinating issues or advice. Maybe you could write subsequent articles regarding this article. I desire to read more issues about it!
I don't have TV service, so yeah - I grabbed every episode of 1, 9, and 10.
Never seen any of 2-8 though.
does anyone know why contact lenses are so painful..thanks..
The top 2 make sense – but aren't the rest of them included in cheap basic cable packages?
This can be a actually fantastic read for me, Need to admit that you are on the list of finest bloggers I ever saw.Thanks for posting this informative write-up.
What? "Baywatch" isn't number 1? How can that be possible?
No wonder GOT is at #1. Best show on TV in a very long time. But as article states, there are 2 reasons why these shows are on the list.
1. They are not available in most countries
2. In order to watch Game of Thrones even in US, you need TV subscription and a premium HBO channel. HBO should make its' GO service available as hulu, instead of forcing everyone to subscribe to TV provider.
HBO will probably end up doing a paid subscription service for World Wide Web based streaming by 2020. As long as the cost to the customer is the same, the cable and satellite will not have much argument against the service.
