Congratulations Australia We’re The Highest Pirater Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ In The World!

Yes it’s true GAME OF THRONES SEASON TWO is the most pirated TV show of 2012 so far. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when TRUE BLOOD SEASON FIVE rolls out in 6 weeks. Having a look at these stats as found by TORRENTFREAK:

Top 10 countries:

Australia 10.1%
United States 9.7%
Canada 7.7%
United Kingdom 7.6%
The Netherlands 4.4%
Norway 3.7%
Spain 3.2%
Poland 3.0%
Greece 2.8%
Philippines 2.7%

Top 10 cities:

London 3.0%
Sydney 3.0%
Melbourne 2.9%
Amsterdam 2.2%
Athens 2.2%
Perth 1.8%
Istanbul 1.6%
Brisbane 1.5%
Budapest 1.3%
Madrid 1.3%

This proves something we already knew – as GAME OF THRONES airs on HBO (a pay subscription channel) – Australians are proudly a pack of stingy, thieving bastards! I amazed by the fact that BRISBANE illegally downloads more than MADRID! I’m astounded  by the fact that roughly the same amount of torrenters in Sydney downloaded it as there were in LONDON! But look, we’re a country founded on criminals – what did you expect?

What’s the answer? GO DAY AND DATE SIMULTANEOUS WORLDWIDE! Sure it won’t completely wipe out the piracy but a % of them will watch it legitimately.
