Most Pirated TV Shows of 2013 — ‘Game of Thrones’ & ‘Breaking Bad’ Tops
There are very few surprises on the list of the Top 10 most pirated shows of 2013 released by TorrentFreak that includes only individual episodes downloaded via BitTorrent’s file-sharing protocol. HBO’s hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones, which has been setting piracy records, is the clear-cut No. 1 with 5.9 million downloads of the June Season 3 finale. Another piracy record breaker, AMC’s Breaking Bad, is No. 2 with its closer, 4.2 million. The Top 10 features mostly cable shows, including the highest-rated series on television in adults 18-49, AMC’s The Walking Dead (3.6 million downloads), which edged the top-rated broadcast series, CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (3.4 million).
