For the last two years, Videology–a bar and screening room in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood–has been screening the hit show "Game of Thrones" every Sunday night. Fans often made a weekly event out of the screening and even stepped up their GoT game by dressing up in costume.
The party's over. Videology has received a cease and desist letter from HBO, telling the bar it may longer be allowed to screen the show. Bar owner James Leet told the Village Voice that HBO said that its content cannot be shown in a public setting.
HBO did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment.
In addition to being a beloved series with a throng of fans, "Game of Thrones" is also the most notoriously pirated show in the world. Last year, the show's season finale broke the world record for piracy, with 1.5 million people downloading the episode within just 12 hours of its airing.
Following a massive leak last weekend, it appears that HBO is cracking down on the various ways nonsubscribers have managed to get their "Game of Thrones" fix. Fans took to social media to share their frustrations, sadness and general distaste for HBO's latest decision. Some subscribers said they are now considering cancelling their HBO subscription, while others will simply migrate to the next available bar's Sunday night screening.
