The Game of Thrones Season 3 finale broke the piracy record for most downloads accruing more than a million.

The torrent site, TorrentFreak, reports that the Game of Thrones Season 3 finale set a new record with the amount of seeds - coming in at 170,000 people sharing the episode simultaneously.

The million plus downloads puts Game of Thrones into its own category as it's reported that no other download comes close.

The Season 3 finale beat the record for most downloads previously set by Game of Thrones' season 3 premiere.

It's said the episode will go on to have around 5 million downloads in the coming weeks giving Game of Thrones the most pirated TV show of the year, once again.

Part of the reason the downloads have been so high is because HBO keeps Game of Thrones exclusive - meaning no Netflix - and it airs at a later time in the #1 source of the piracy, Australia.

Following Australia, the top pirated countries are the U.S., Canada and the UK.
