The Mandalorian has taken over from Game of Thrones as the most-pirated TV series in 2020, according to TorrentFreak.
The HBO drama has topped the chart for seven years in a row, but was overtaken by Disney Plus’s Star Wars spin-off in 2020. It previously charted at number three in 2019.
Other shows in the top 10 included Amazon’s The Boys at two, Westworld from HBO was third, and Star Trek: Picard came fifth.
The ranking, for single episodes, is based on several sources, including statistics reported by public BitTorrent trackers. Full season downloads are not included.
TorrentFreak noted that BitTorrent traffic only makes up a small portion of the piracy landscape, as a lot of people use streaming sites and services nowadays, which generally do not report viewing statistics.
