HBO Takes a Massive Step To Avoid Game of Thrones Season 8 Leaks
HBO is working on producing Game of Thrones Season 8, which is set to be the final Season of the series. While the series was huge, I don’t think anyone can ignore the fact that it’s success led to it becoming one of the most pirated shows ever. HBO have always had trouble dealing with leaks when it comes to Game of Thrones.
Sometimes, it’s the fans, while sometimes, it’s hackers. During Season 5, we had the first four episodes of Game of Thrones leaked. That didn’t stop at all in Season 6, as most of the script was out even before the Season had premiered. Back when Jon Snow was considered dead, photos of him in filing essentially spoiled the whole mystery for many.
Again in Season 7, Game of Thrones had trouble dealing with leaks. I think for HBO, Season 7 was the most troublesome season. The complete script for the Season was out a long time before the series even premiered. As the Season continued airing, the troubles only increased.
The 4th Episode of this year’s Game of Thrones Season 7, titled “Spoils of War” was leaked some 3 – 4 days before the air date, leading to huge losses for HBO. Then, again, the Episode 6 of the same season was leaked just two days after the Fifth Episode had aired on HBO. While many opted not to watch it, there was a large portion that did, and it is understandable that HBO is taking serious action this year to stop the leaks.
