The Most Pirated TV Series Of 2016

The first of the annual piracy lists has hit today, this one taking into consideration the most pirated TV series of the year. TorrentFreak published the results which indicates piracy figures for TV episodes are about on par with last year, but demand for higher quality episodes with 720p and 1080p streams is rising fast.

As usual these numbers are from public BitTorrent trackers and several other sources for the site. Online streaming and downloads from filelocker services are not included since there are no public sources to draw data from which means total piracy numbers are significantly higher.

Unsurprisingly HBO’s “Game of Thrones” remained the winner with the big budget fantasy series winning the title for a fifth year in a row and mush of the Top 10 hadn’t changed bar three newcomers – HBO’s “Westworld,” FOX’s “Lucifer” and Amazon’s “The Grand Tour” pushing the likes of “Mr. Robot,” “Supergirl” and “The Blacklist” out of the Top 10.

The site used to list download estimates but have stopped doing so due to the changes in the torrent indexing systems this year. The Top 10 are:

1. “Game of Thrones”
2. “The Walking Dead”
3. “Westworld”
4. “The Flash”
5. “Arrow”
6. “The Big Bang Theory”
7. “Vikings”
8. “Lucifer”
9. “Suits”
10. “The Grand Tour”
