HBO Spain airs an hour of episode 6 by mistake

Tyrion Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 4, "The Spoils of War", was leaked several days before it hit television last week.

They are charged with "criminal breach of trust and computer-related offenses" in violation of India's Information Technology Act of 2000.

FOUR CHAPS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED on suspicion of being the people involved in the theft and release of an as-then unreleased episode of death and dragons show Game of Thrones.

"This confirms the compromise of episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 7, earlier this afternoon".

Prime Focus, a Mumbai-based company that stores and processes the series for Indian streaming website Hotstar, had lodged a complaint with police.

Those arrested in Maharashtra are "associated" with Star India's technology vendor, Prime Focus Technologies, the broadcaster said in a statement. We are deeply grateful to the police for their swift and prompt action.

The arrests came after a complaint to police from Prime Focus Technology, where three of the suspects now work, according to the BBC.

According to the company, the accused were its employees who had the access to official credentials to reach out to the episodes.

"We at Star India and Novi Digital Entertainment Private Limited stand committed and ready to help the law enforcement agencies with any technical assistance and help they may require in taking the investigation to its logical conclusion", it read.

With Game of Thrones being one of the most pirated TV shows in the world, it is easy and tempting to see why hackers and leaksters want to get their hands on the show before everyone else.

One of the most popular TV series lately came into news when some of its episode were leaked on social media. They appeared in court and were remanded until August 21.
