Congratulations to you, congratulations to you, congratulations dear season finale of Game of Thrones for getting the record for having the most people torrenting an episode simultaneously, breaking, from what I can tell, your own record from a few weeks agooooooooo, congratulations to you! From TorrentFreak, via Uproxx:
The season finale of Game of Thrones has set a new BitTorrent record with more than 170,000 people sharing an episode simultaneously. In just one day more than a million people have downloaded a copy of the show, figures no other TV-show comes close to. [...]
In recent weeks the hit show has been shared millions of times online, but never before have we seen this many people sharing the same file.
Within a few hours after it was released hundreds of thousands grabbed a copy of the show via The Pirate Bay and other torrent sites, breaking the old record Game of Thrones set just a few weeks ago during the premiere of the third season.
AND MANY MOOOOOOOOOOOORE! Ugh, but stuff like this always brings up the same question: What do you get for the show that has been downloaded by everyone, for a celebration about a fairly boring record, unless you care about stuff like this, in which case it’s probably pretty neat and I don’t want to rain on your parade at all, I’m just trying to give both sides a voice? A GIIIFF PAARRRRTTTYYYYY!
