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.
