#GoT Finale: How Piracy Hurts Game of Thrones (and how the loss could help get us more episodes)


Is it really surprising that Game of Thrones is the most pirated TV show, ever? The show, which aire its finale in the US on Sunday, which will be aired on Friday on M-Net, once again broke records, with 1,5 million people pirating the show within hours, according to CNET

"Yesterday saw the airing of the final episode for season four of HBO's "Game of Thrones". According to data from the official US ratings, "The Children", as the episode was titled, was the most watched GoT episode to date, hitting 7.1 million viewers. According to TorrentFreak the episode also saw "roughly" 1.5 million downloads in the first 12 hours after airing.

In the New York Times last week, George R.R. Martin  told the newspaper that he wished each season had thirteen episodes. "“I wish we had more episodes,” he said, speaking from his home in Santa Fe, N.M. “I’d love to have 13 episodes. With 13 episodes, we could
include smaller scenes that we had to cut, scenes that make the story
deeper and richer.” 

So, our favourite Game Of Thrones recap site, Pajiba, had a very interesting theory. How cool would it be if those 1,5 million people, could subscribe to HBO just for the show and pay a subscription of $30, which can help Game of Thrones have more episodes
