Game of Thrones S5 downloads arrive early on August 31

Game of Thrones stands chief among all shows, at least when you look at how many people are pirating it. That piracy was aided by early leaks of season 5 episodes, and all in all HBO is scrambling to squeeze some pocket change from those Internet rebels. As such, it isn’t surprising HBO has decided to launch the digital downloads for season 5 before it releases the Blu-ray and DVD versions (though the network probably won’t cry if you pre-order them anyway). Downloads start next month.

HBO’s Game of Thrones continues to smash piracy records

HBO’s Game of Thrones continues to smash piracy records

HBO seems to have one of the best problems that a television network could have. Their mega hit Game of Thrones continues to break internet piracy records, and the show gets more viewers from illicit methods than many other TV shows get legitimately. It must be some form of a compliment when fans of the show who don't have HBO will do anything they can to catch the latest episode. And in fact it's the latest episode that once has once again set a new piracy record.

Game of Thrones ‘Kill the Boy’ episode set new piracy record

The recent episode of Game of Thrones ‘Kill the Boy’ (Season 5, Episode 5) has set a new piracy record, something that is becoming common for the series. In this latest case, the record was likely set due to the first four episodes of the season leaking so early — meaning a lot of viewers were able to grab them and watch, and then were forced to wait a long while for the fifth to finally come about, leading to an influx of pirates on torrenting websites.

Microsoft adds Game of Thrones words to Word’s spellcheck

Microsoft adds Game of Thrones words to Word’s spellcheck

Fantasy stories are fun, but trying to write about them is tricky -- tis a rare fantasy novel that uses conventional spellings, and the end result is two things: a lot of head scratching and Web searching in hunt of the correct spelling, and a bunch of squiggly red lines under words that a word processor thinks are spelled incorrectly. Such problems will no longer affect those using Microsoft Word, however...at least not if they're writing about Game of Thrones, which now holds a place in Word's spellcheck.

HBO warns torrent users over recent Game of Thrones leak

HBO warns torrent users over recent Game of Thrones leak

Following last week's news that the first four episodes of Game of Thrones season five were leaked onto torrent sites on the night before the season premiere, they were subsequently downloaded millions of times. Understandable, with HBO's drama being the most pirated show around the globe. Also unsurprising is that HBO is displeased with the leak. So displeased, in fact, that the company sent warnings to thousands of torrent users attempting to deter them from downloading the show any further.

Sling TV handled Game of Thrones well last night

After the issues that plagued the service during the Final Four, Sling TV customers (and those interested in Sling) were right to be wary. A large event and streaming didn’t mix so well, so the Game of Thrones premiere was bound to bring a lot of attention. After announcing HBO would hit Sling TV, we all wondered just how well the streaming service would fare with another massive streaming effort. As it turns out, not without issues, but overall — Sling TV did really well with the Game of Thrones season 5 debut.
