ET- Not only is Game of Thrones one of television's most critically acclaimed series, the fantasy drama is also no slouch when it comes to being illegally downloaded.
In fact, the fourth season of the HBO hit was the year's most pirated TV series, the third consecutive year that GoT has earned that dubious honour.
According to stats from TorrentFreak, Game of Thrones was downloaded an estimated 8.1 million times on BitTorrent to easily take the #1 spot. Coming in at a distant second was The Walking Dead, which had 4.8 million illegal downloads.
In addition, Game of Thrones also made Torrent history earlier this year when one episode was shared by more than 251,000 people simultaneously — an all-time torrenting record.
