We already know that Game of Thrones, the uber-popular HBO TV show was the most pirated show of 2012, but the show's season three premiere episode had some stellar numbers, too.

It aired last night, and saw 6.7 million US fans tuning in, but how were those download numbers considering it was the most pirated show of last year? Well, according to Torrent Freak, a single torrent of the season three premiere saw 160,000 simultaneous connections - but adding all of the releases together in one big pile of downloads would see well over one million downloads.

 

HBO even allowed viewers to watch the season premiere in more ways than usual, where the network allowed customers to stream Game of Thrones through HBO Go at the same time that cable subscribers watched it live.
