Game of Thrones Streams for Season 8 Collapse as Critics Turn on Show

The number of people searching for streams of the final season of Game of Thrones has dropped dramatically since the first episode aired, figures have revealed.

Tens of millions of fans of the hit show turned to pirated streams and illicit torrents to watch the first episode of season 8 in order to avoid paying for legitimate services that host the series, such as HBO in the US and Sky and Now TV in the UK.

Digital piracy authority MUSO tracked 54 million piracy visits in the first 24 hours following the official airing of the first episode, though searches for Game of Thrones streams for the following episode dropped by more than half.

For the most recent and penultimate episode, which was panned by critics, Google data shows that search interest for pirated streams is down to around 10 per cent compared to the season 8 opener.
