It is quite safe to assume that Game of Thrones is the most hyped television series in the history of TV shows. Another interesting fact that validates the aforementioned claim is that the popular HBO series finale season’s premiere was viewed as many as 17.4 million times worldwide.
Interestingly, this is only the stats for the show’s legally viewed sessions and the illegal views are predicted to be at least three times more than this! Talk about popularity, eh?

As per statistics, India came off at number one with as many as 10 million pirated views of the show and China stood at second. Quite surprisingly US where the series originally hails from, came at number 3 in terms of illegal views of the first episode of Game of Thrones.
