Blatch, the US ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich, a fan of the great epic, says a message that bothers him: Australia is one of the biggest pirates of the HBO fantasy series.
"Unfortunately, the TV show is one of the largest pirates of the world, with an unprecedented amount of illegal downloads," Blatch posted on Facebook. As Ambassador to Australia, I am vexed to find that Australian fans are among the most serious offenders. He added that Australians could no longer use the time difference between us and Macao as a pretext for stealing. Some people used to say that they were using pirated sites just because they didn't want to postpone watching the show, but now after a few hours in the United States, Australians can see through legitimate resources. He also said that any reason is not a reason, stealing is stealing. He says the illegal downloading of resources is not a crime without a victim. If the 4 million people who legitimately watch the Game of Thrones are illegal downloads, then this great piece of work will not be born. It is reported that the TV series is the most expensive in the production, each set as high as 6 million Australian dollars. According to BitTorrent's data, the number of illegal downloads per episode in 2012 was more than 4 million times, already equivalent to the amount of viewers watching on television. The show was filmed in Malta, Iceland, Croatia and Morocco. More than 1 million people were illegally downloading the first episode of the third quarter premiere in the United States on March 31 this year.
