HBO’s Game of Thrones is so popular, keeping a handle on leaks is becoming a problem. Yet another episode of the series has leaked early.
After the new season’s Episode 4 hit torrent sites due to a leak from HBO partner Star India, Episode 6 has leaked as well, via HBO Nordic in Spain… ahead of its Aug. 20 premiere, reports Engadget.
The Game of Thrones episode was pulled after just an hour, but it was copied and has popped up on a number of torrent sites and other places online.
The show has been plagued by leaks over the years. The first four episodes of season 5 were stolen. However, the latest leaks were by mistake. Episode 4 was leaked via a “screener”, which was watermarked with the Star India logo, resulting in the arrest of four employees of a Star India subcontractor in India.
Despite all the drama though, Season 7 of Game of Thrones has broke records, with the episode “The Spoils of War” setting a record right before “Eastwatch” broke that record.
New episode of Game of Thrones air on HBO on Sundays at 9 pm ET.
