Even though Game of Thrones ended in 2019, no one still broke one of its records. Although in the meantime many high-profile titles have already appeared.
” Game of Thrones ” turned out to be the most frequently pirated series in the world at the time of its broadcast. And as it turns out, despite the fact that the series ended in 2019, no other series has been downloaded illegally so often.
Game of Thrones remains the most pirated series ever
Game of Thrones has been hailed the most pirated series for a reason. Each year, HBO’s production “won” the rankings of the most popular series on torrents, and according to Screen Rant , the premiere of season 8 in the first 24 hours was attracted by 54 million people. Thus, the series set a record that others do not even come close to.
However, this is not so surprising considering that at the time of the thrill of “Game of Thrones” it was a cultural phenomenon. However, according to USwitch , in 2022 Game of Thrones “is still the most frequently pirated series. Within a month, illegal streams are searched for an average of 8,560 times, which beats” Euphoria “, which reached a score of 7,960 and ranked third with” Friends “with a monthly search frequency of 5,060 per month.
After 2019, ” WandaVision ” and ” The Mandalorian ” were hailed as the most pirated series since “Game of Thrones” – which was probably helped by the limited access to Disney + in the world.
Currently, “Game of Thrones” certainly helps the ever closer premiere of “The Dragon House “, which motivates viewers either to refresh the series or to get to know it for the first time. As you can see, despite widespread criticism from the final two seasons of “Game of Thrones”, the HBO series still has no intention of giving up its place on the pedestal.
The prequel to “Game of Thrones”, which takes place 200 years before the famous events of Westeros, will be shown on August 22nd. Recently, we were able to see new photos from the series . The Dragon House has a higher budget than the final season of Game of Thrones. George RR Martin also hopes that the production will turn out to be better than the series “Lord of the Rings”, although he claims that he is also cheering for the competition.
