HBO has mistakenly leaked an unaired episode of Game Of Thrones. The sixth episode which was due to air on 20th August 2017 was made available to HBO Espana and HBO Nordic subscribers for an hour on Tuesday (15Aug17).
“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,” an HBO spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “The error appears to have originated with a third-party vendor and the episode was removed as soon as it was recognized.”
The latest leak comes after the fourth episode of the current season was allegedly slipped out by contractors working for HBO’s distribution partner Star India. Four men connected to third-party firm Prime Focus Technologies have been arrested in connection with the leak.
