HBO Spain made an error and released the upcoming episode of Game of Thrones season 7 live on their website for few hours.
This leak is even worse than The Spoils of War leak because that episode was released only in standard definition 360p but the upcoming episode has been leaked in all three versions- standard and high definition 720p and 1080p.
‘Game of Thrones’ is a rage unlike we’ve ever seen. I mean, I have seen the internet unite to fight trolls, But I’ve never seen the entire effing internet go as crazy as they go for ‘Game of Thrones’.
There are many fans which are angry with the leak, furious, irritated and are sharing the plight of fans who cannot in any possible way watch the leaked episode right now.
There are gifs and reactions about the next episode from the people who’ve watched it and they are 100% legit. People are surprised because it was HBO who released the whole episode and Reddit was busy contemplating what might’ve happened.
Now let’s see the reaction of the fans over the leak:

46.5 million people and not one person can properly upload a video. Spain has failed the world tonight #gameofthrones

Is it a coincidence that only the BEST episodes of the season are getting leaked? I think not. #GameOfThrones

Now we have to wait to see what impact this leak will have on HBO. The Spoils of War was leaked 2 days before the scheduled airing and episode 6 has leaked 5 days before it officially airs on HBO.
Though the earlier leak didn’t have much impact on the ratings for HBO & Game of Thrones, this one should definitely cause a few problems for the network, considering the hype surrounding the episode and the fact that it has leaked so early and that too in high definition.
We must take a stand and not support the leaked version as it won’t be fair to the kind of work the team of GOT has put in making that one epic episode.
