Game of Thrones continues to break records of one kind or another. In 2012 it became the most illegally downloaded TV show of that year. Now according to the latest numbers, it has another honor. Last night HBO aired the Game of Thrones Season 3 premier and in just a day it has been downloaded over a million times.
There have never been so many people sharing a file at the same time. We are talking 160,000 simultaneous peers, for a new record. It broke the record for the largest BitTorrent swarm ever, previously held by the season premier of Heroes with 144,663 peers.
The delay in airing for viewers outside the U.S. probably helped. HBO has been working to fix these delays, but hey, people want to see what they want to see.
