The first four episodes of Game of Thrones season five have been leaked online a day before its official release.
HBO are yet to comment on how these episodes found their way onto torrent sites however it is believed it’s due to the way the show is produced. Greg Spence, the producer in charge of post-production for Game of Thrones said: “The cast is looping all over the world, sending files back and forth.” “Artists are working in special-effects houses all over the world.”
“Sadly, it seems the leaked four episodes of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones originated from within a group approved by HBO to receive them. We’re actively assessing how this breach occurred,” a spokesperson said.
The show is normally broadcast at 720p or 1080p (HD) however the leaked episodes are currently a pretty scruffy looking 480p. Worth waiting for your normal broadcasted episode I’d say!
