This weeks “Most pirated TV-episodes” chart lists four shows that were leaked before the official air date: ‘Stargate Atlantis’, ‘True Blood’, ‘Life on Mars’ and ‘Do Not Disturb’. It’s PREAIR season.
This week, seven shows leaked on BitTorrent, before they actually aired on TV. Four of those made it into the top 10 of most downloaded TV-shows. Preair leaks are not uncommon, in fact, it is suggested that some shows are leaked on purpose.
The data of the weekly download chart, collected by TorrentFreak, is gathered from a representative sample of BitTorrent sites and is for informational and educational reference only.
At the end of the year we will publish a list of most downloaded TV-shows for the entire year, like we did last December.
TV-shows such as “Lost” and “Heroes” can get up to 10 million downloads per episode, in only a week.
