The season finale of Game of Thrones has set a brand new piracy record, with a quarter million people sharing a single file at the same time. During the first 12 hours roughly 1.5 million file-sharers downloaded a pirated copy of the popular show, a number that will swell to over 7.5 million during the days to come.
The fourth season of Game of Thrones has been the most-viewed so far, both through official channels and among pirates.
The season finale was therefore expected to break all previous records. The official U.S. ratings that just came in show that "The Children" was the most viewed season finale thus far, with 7.1 million people tuning in.
