HBO Spain accidentally posted the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones season 7. Footage from the episode started appearing online and the full episode began popping up on torrent sites, according to The Independent.
“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,” HBO said in a statement. “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.”
Good news is that leaks don’t seem to have an impact on the HBO show’s ratings. For this season, the show has smashed its own ratings records.
