Yet another Game of Thrones leak

August 16, 2017

Yet another episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones has leaked early – this time via a blunder from the broadcaster itself. HBO España and HBO Nordic accidentally dropped Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 four days early.

The episode was available on-demand to subscribers in Spanish and Nordic territories for just over an hour before being removed – plenty long enough for it to be ripped and shared online.

HBO Europe issued a statement saying: “We have learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO España platforms. The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized. This is not connected to the recent cyber incident at HBO in the US.”
