The Walking Dead Tops TV Piracy Rankings


The Walking Dead is the most-pirated TV show of 2018 through BitTorrent, according to TorrentFreak.

The AMC series takes over the top spot from Game of Thrones, which didn’t air any new episodes this year. Game of Thrones had ranked highest in piracy for six years in a row. Last year, The Walking Dead ranked second to GoT.

The Flash and The Big Bang Theory both moved up a spot, in the absence of Game of Thrones, to second and third, respectively. Vikings moved up to number four, followed by Titans, Arrow, Supernatural, Westworld, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Suits.

The ranking is compiled by TorrentFreak based on several sources, including statistics reported by public BitTorrent trackers and the DHT network. Full season downloads are not included.
