The season 5 of the series “Game of Thrones” which had premiere last Sunday, had over 8 million people in 170 countries watching the first episode.

This means that the series keeps HBO’s most watched series ever title, according to media research company Nielsen.

At the end of season 4 last summer. Game of Thrones had an average number of 19 million viewers, The New York Times writes.

As the first episode of season 5 started quite good, Distrita will think that this series will skyrock during this season. It is also worth knowing that 4 of the first episodes have been pirated. HBO now puts all of its efforts to stop it. Especially the new torrent web-browser Periscope.
