Why People Pirate 'Game of Thrones'

Game of Thrones, possibly the most pirated television show in the world, is also the most expensive to watch if you were to do so legally. TorrentFreak breaks down what it would cost to watch the show legally in a variety of countries.

In Canada, Game of Thrones comes in a package of The Movie Network. The price is roughly $20 CAD (~ 18 USD) per month on both Bell and Rogers. This also requires a digital or satellite TV subscription, which drives the price up to over $60 CAD per month for those who don’t have one.

Again, as with the previous examples, some plans require a several-months-long contract which makes it less interesting for those who only want to watch Game of Thrones.
