First Episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 Leak Online
[Image: got5.jpg]Starting a few hours ago several episodes of the new Game of Thrones season started to appear online.

The copies were first spotted on the private torrent tracker IPT, but they soon made their way to more public sites such as The Pirate Bay, RARBG and KickassTorrents.

At the time of writing the first four episodes of the new season have been posted online. One source informs TF that the leak most likely originates from review copies sent to the press.

The leaks are a huge blow to HBO. In an effort to decrease piracy the company worked hard to ensure that the fifth season of Game of Thrones would premiere in 170 countries simultaneously.

Today, however, pirates have scooped up the exclusive, releasing four episodes worldwide.

While it came unexpected, many Game of Thrones fans have already spotted the early leak.

During the first three hours the episodes were downloaded more than 100,000 times and this number is expected to increase to more than a million later today.

Over the past three years Game of Thrones has been the most pirated TV-show. Based on the popularity of today’s leaks, this will be no different in 2015.

Quote:During the first three hours the episodes were downloaded more than 100,000 times

that is a good crash-test for torrent protocol
if you think of it that way:

lets imagine those 4 episodes
are 1343MB in size, that is:

100,000people*1343MB = 128TB of data

that amounts to transfer speed of:

128TB/3hours = 12.1GB/s

or in simple words 10 downloaders are
getting their 4 episodes every second,
that is how efficient torrent protocol is
