Piracy is a huge problem in the entertainment industry and something needs to be done so that it ends. Artists are losing out and its a total disregard for the hard work of other people. It's rude.
In SMtv's interview with The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln, we spoke about the popularity of the show and how AMC and Fox International Channels were doing their best to air the show as close to the US air date as possible. The Walking Dead does that and airs less than 24 hours around the world. That is just one way to curb piracy.
However, it's sometimes a bit flattering to know that your TV show is one of the most pirated shows in the world. TorrentFreak released their top 10 most pirated TV shows of 2013 and as expected, it's mostly the best shows that are currently ruling the TV industry. Here's the full list.
1. Game of Thrones (5.9 million)
2. Breaking Bad (4.2 million)
3. The Walking Dead (3.6 million)
4. The Big Bang Theory (3.4 million)
5. Dexter (3.1 million)
6. How I Met Your Mother (3 million)
7. Suits (2.6 million)
8. Homeland (2.4 million)
9. Vikings (2.3 million)
10. Arrow (2.2 million)
Let's hope 2014 will have less pirated TV shows. But we doubt.
