On the very eve of the latest season’s premier, it has been reported that the first four episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 were spotted across a number of torrent trackers. The leaked episodes were downloaded more than 100,000 times during the first three hours and this number is set to increase by day’s end. HBO had carefully timed the launch of its HBO Now streaming service around the premier, with cable-free access to Game of Thrones being one of the biggest selling points of the new service. This serves as a huge blow to the network giant and we will just have to wait and see how they respond to this unforeseen event.
