Season 7 of the Game of Thrones has got to be jinxed. Since HBO was hacked, Game of Thrones episodes are getting leaked every other day. While scripts got out in the HBO leak, soon after another episode was leaked, for which HBO s India partner Hotstar (owned by Star India) took responsibility. Four people in Mumbai were also arrested in this case yesterday. And now, just a day after, about a week ahead of schedule, another Game of Thrones episode (season 7 episode 6) was telecast on HBO Spain.

However, contrary to what I expected, or in some people s case, exactly how they d think, the majority of the social media has no concern about the hacks and leak, all they want is to know what happened in the episode 6 before someone spoils it for them.
And many did what the GoT fans around the world wanted. They live broadcasted the episode on their social media handles. People like this one. ALSO READ: Game of Thrones spoilers leaked by hackers; demand millions in ransom: Report
As for the arrest we mentioned above, earlier this month, the episode 4 of this season was leaked in India, following which Hotstar initiated an internal probe. The leak was traced to the Bengaluru office of Prime Focus Technologies, the firm that is involved in the digital content of the series for Hotstar. According to the Mumbai police, the 4 accused had illegally downloaded the fourth episode of Game of Thrones on August 4, three days before its official telecast and uploaded it online.
