Episode 4 was also leaked online by an HBO affiliate in India two days before its scheduled time
HBO Spain has committed a devastating blunder as it mistakenly broadcasts Game of Thrones Season 7 Episode 6 four days early.
The episode was reportedly available on-demand to Spanish subscribers for one hour before the error was spotted and the episode pulled down But that was long enough for HBO Spain viewers to watch the next explosive episode online.
At the time of writing, the full episode has just started being posted on torrent sites and is being uploaded with the file name ‘Game_of_Thrones_-_S07E06.flv’.
Footage from the episode was posted on YouTube, Instagram, Twitch and other streaming services, before swiftly being taken down.
HBO’s got the hottest TV show in the world, but not the ability to prevent the episodes from leaking before their scheduled air date.
It’s not the first time an episode from season 7 has leaked, episode 4 was leaked online by an HBO affiliate in India two days before its scheduled time.
This time episode 6 was mistakenly posted online by HBO Nordic in Spain for an hour before being removed
HBO Europe said in a statement it had “learned that the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones was accidentally posted for a brief time on the HBO Nordic and HBO Spain platforms.
“The error appears to have originated with a third party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized,” it added.
