HBO has confirmed to us that Sunday's #GoT has leaked with a watermark from its distribution partner Star India. The episode, Season 7, episode four, entitled "The Spoils of War", appeared on the subreddit r/freefolk, a popular Game of Thrones discussion board that is not moderated.
Variety reported Monday that hackers may have leaked unreleased episodes of several HBO shows, as well as a script for "Game of Thrones".
I would rather wait a few days to see a better quality video than settle with a low quality leak.
And then there was the HBO subsidiary that prematurely released an episode during season 6.
HBO did not respond to a request for comment.
A spokesperson from the Indian network confirmed the leak in a statement to The Verge.
"Information security is a prime concern at HBO, and we assume our role and responsibility seriously to save guide information that is assigned to us".
"Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us." continued Piepler. It is a textbook example of quintessential HBO teamwork. Would you welcome more Game of Thrones leaks, or do you prefer enjoying the show on its official air date? But, with the new hacking incident coming into the limelight, looks like the channel left some loopholes that allowed hackers gain an early access to things.
Disney Chief Bob Iger later said the hackers' threat was a hoax.
It's not just episodes of Thrones that have been taken by the hackers.
