Game of Thrones’ ratings continued to grow for its just-completed seventh season, as the show builds up to its farewell with season 8. But new figures released by piracy-battling company MUSO have suggested that Game Of Thrones season 7 was illegally downloaded an eye-watering one billion times.
MUSO tracked activity across piracy networks since the start of season 7, and as of September 3rd, it recorded that Game Of Thrones season 7 episodes had been downloaded or streamed illegally 1,029,787,668 times.
The breakdown episode by episode is as follows:
Episode 1: 187,427,575
Episode 2: 123,901,209
Episode 3: 116,027,851
Episode 4: 121,719,868
Episode 5: 151,569,560
Episode 6: 184,913,279
Episode 7: 143,393,804

The recent run was hit by early episode leaks, but also registered the highest legal viewing figures in the history of the show.
Game Of Thrones season 8 is expected to premiere in 2019.
