Producers of the series The Tron Game is certainly enjoying its popularity and millions of followers watching every episode. However, viewers who view this production are not only paying subscribers for access to the HBO channel, but also fans who refer to it in a less legitimate way.
TorrentFreak, like every year, has compiled a list of television productions, which in 2015 were the most favorite. As you may have guessed, the winner of this unfortunate plebiscite, like last year, proved to be the hugely popular HBO thriller Game of the Tron.
From the published-of-the-most-pirated-tv-show-of-2015 report, this year saw a total of 14.4 million viewers via the BitTorrent network. In the second place was the series The Walking Dead telling the world dominated by zombies, who in front of the computer screens attracted 6.9 million viewers. In the third position was comedy series The Big Bang Theory, which was watched by 4.4 million people.
For HBO, piracy can be a serious problem, as the TorrentFreak report points out that twice as many people downloaded the final episode of the fifth season of the Throne Game than they watched it on television. The reason for this is probably the need to pay a subscription fee for HBO, which is $ 15 per month. Many people think that this is too pricey, so they will save that money, and hence, in the case of this series, there is such a high level of piracy.
Not only this series seems to raise more interest on torrents than on normal television. With other productions is similar and eg debut, pretty badly rated serial Mr..The robot attracted an average of 1.75 million people in front of the TVs, while the average number of episodes was about 3.5 million. The larger audience on the network than on television also had the lawsuit Suits series, which was respectively 2.38 million on TV and 2.6 million on torrrents. Of course, the above data is of course one segment.
In turn, one of the series, which is more eager to watch on television than downloaded from the network, is the aforementioned The Big Bang Theory, whose episodes watched an average of 18.3 million people. Similar to The Walking Dead, which had 15.78 million spectators in front of television sets.Tweet
