Multimedia, AV "With over 3 million downloads per episode, the HBO hit series Game of Thrones is without doubt the most pirated TV-show of the season. Data gathered by TorrentFreak shows that most of the pirates come from Australia, while London tops the list of pirate cities. But why have these people turned to BitTorrent?" Because in order to get it legally, I have to take a monthly subscription costing me €15 per month. So instead, I buy the season box sets as they come out, and download them every Monday morning in the meantime.

I want to watch it in a timely fashion so I can talk about it with friends overseas, and at a time of my choosing.
There is no legal way to do that here.

I subscribe to an online video service for the anime I watch so I feel I am being honest when I say that if an option with sensible pricing, decent quality, and timely episode releases were to be available, I WOULD take advantage of it.
But Hulu etc is blocked, and even taking advantage of services that unblock it I still can't give them my money because they block overseas creditcards. I have tried.
