Recently we had reported that HBO was hacked and the hackers managed to steal 1.5 TB of data from HBO, which included episodes from some of HBO’s other series and also the written material from the upcoming Game of Thrones episode, with the hackers warning about more leaks in the upcoming days and finally it has happened and it includes the upcoming Game of Thrones episode, The Spoils of War.
However, there are reports coming out which say that the source of the leak might not have been HBO, as the video mentions Star India, which has the rights to telecast Game of Thrones episodes in India. We will have to wait for an official response from HBO or Star India regarding the leaks and only then we will find out the source of the leak.
This isn’t the first time a Game of Thrones episode has been leaked. Two years ago, first 4 episodes of the 5th season were leaked at the start of the season and even last year, one of the episode was available online hours before it released on HBO.
These leaks are really unfortunate as they ruin the experience for other viewers, as we have already started seeing people posting spoilers on Facebook and Twitter. We will be reporting about the upcoming episode once it airs officially and we urge our readers to avoid spoiling the episode for those who are waiting for the episode to air officially.
