Nevermind the HBO hackers. It appears that the television network may have leaked an entire future episode of “Game of Thrones” by accident themselves!
The future episode in question is none other than “Game of Thrones” S07E06.
According to reddit user kingrdgz, the episode was aired “by mistake” on HBO Spain. For an entire hour, even, before it was taken down. Alas, it caught the attention of several people and was even livestreamed by an Instagram user (@afaga23). There were also streams on Twitch and YouTube.
Note: “Game of Thrones” S07E04, titled “The Spoils of War”, also made its way online earlier this month, and 4 people in connection with the leak (including a current and a former employee of Prime Focus Technologies, technology partner of TV broadcaster Star India Pvt. Ltd.) have since been arrested.
It is unclear how the premature release of the episode happened, and as at time of writing, HBO has yet to comment on the incident. But one thing’s for sure, considering the fact that we’re still a couple of days away from the official release of “Game of Thrones” S07E06, it’s best that fans stay away from any articles “Game of Thrones”-related. Trust us when we say that there will be spoilers, spoilers everywhere.
“Game of Thrones” airs every Monday on HBO (Astro Ch 411 / 431) at the same time as the U.S. The series is also be available on Astro On The Go.
