Game of Thrones takes title for most pirated show from... itself

House Greyjoy approves this Blip

There sure are plenty of pirates on the Narrow Sea, with the latest figures suggesting that the finale of Game of Thrones has set a new BitTorrent record.

Yeah, so the previous record was also held by GoT (the premiere) but the 170,000 simultaneous shares suggested by TorrentFreak and the more than a million downloads in a day show that pirates still like a good old broadsword just as much as a cutlass.

More blips!

Quick, check out more of our lovely blips before the Dothraki horde attacks!
