It's no secret that HBO's "Game of Thrones" is one of the most popular shows ever. But it's not just leading ratings on TV — it's also seeing unheard-of levels of piracy. The latest record? Over 200,000 people pirating Season 4 Episode 5 at once using file-sharing protocol BitTorrent.
The numbers were seen by BitTorrent news site TorrentFreak on Sunday evening, not long after the episode aired. A single tracker — that is, a server that helps coordinate the swarm of people uploading and downloading the file — was hosting 207,054 people at one point.
