Game of Thrones most downloaded show on HBO

Posted on: April 27th, 2016 by Candy

You know the argument that Game of Thrones fans wouldn’t illegally download the series if HBO would simply make new episodes available online in a timely fashion without a cable subscription?

Yeah. That’s not true.

EW reached out to piracy news blog TorrentFreak to tally the number of downloads of Thrones recent fifth season premiere. The result? The episode, “The Wars to Come,” was downloaded a whopping 13 million times, a new piracy record for the series. Most of those downloads (10 percent) were from within United States, more than any other country (the runners-up were France, Brazil, China, Russia, UK, India, Canada, Australia and Spain). Australia continued to show huge piracy rates, with a full 32 percent of Thrones viewership due to piracy (compared to 8 percent in the U.S.). By one estimate, the piracy resulted in $44 million in lost U.S. revenue for that one episode alone.

In the ramp-up to Thrones returning for season 5, HBO took two big steps to potentially combat piracy. HBO shifted its worldwide distribution network so that 170 countries would debut the show on the same day, plus launched HBO Now—U.S. premium cable’s first stand-alone streaming service that doesn’t require a cable subscription. HBO Now costs $14.99 per month, but HBO offered a 30-day free trial of the service in April that subscribers could cancel at any time—so users could have binged the entire series legally and for free.

The one stumbling block for some viewers is that HBO Now is heavily tied into Apple products—the new streaming service is only available on Apple TV, iPad and iPhones, which is a deal breaker for many non-Apple users.

Thrones is the most pirated TV show in the world, and while HBO didn’t specifically cite illegal downloads of the fantasy drama as its reason for either move, it was obvious to anybody reading coverage of the hit series over the past few years that GoT piracy was a big incentive for HBO to change its business model. Anecdotally, the top two reasons downloaders tend to give on comment boards as to why they pirate Thrones was (1) they live in a country that airs Thrones weeks/months after the U.S. and want to avoid spoilers or (B) they don’t want to buy a full cable subscription to watch one show. But with both those reasons largely off the table, Thrones piracy is still more popular than ever.

The show’s legal viewing, however, is also at a record high: The season 5 premiere generated a record 8 million live viewers on HBO. The network is waiting for seven days of DVR playback to come in next week before releasing a fuller number that includes repeats and On Demand viewing, but that number will almost certainly be a record too.

Season 5 had more problems with piracy than usual. The entire first four episodes of the series leaked onto BitTorrent the weekend of the show’s return after somebody uploaded the DVD screener package that was sent to critics and other approved insiders. HBO has not yet publicly identified the source of the leak. But one estimate says 32 million people illegally downloaded Thrones episodes during the show’s April 12 premiere week.

Chicago gets the first “Saved By the Bell” diner

Posted on: April 20th, 2016 by Candy

and hopefully not the last one!

Earlier this year, it was announced that Chicago would be getting a Saved by the Bell-themed pop-up diner. Details were scant, with little information accompanying the announcement.

That’s no longer the case.

Derek Berry, the brains behind Saved by the Max, has announced both a location and the date of the restaurant’s grand opening.

Saved by the Max will open on June 1st at 1941 W. North Avenue, in the Wicker Park neighborhood, and will be open a month (it is, after all, a pop-up diner). Tickets to the grand opening will be available for reservation on Friday, April 22 at www.savedbythemax.com.

To celebrate, they even got Max from Saved by the Bell — A.K.A. comedian Ed Alonzo — to announce the restaurant’s opening in a video, which you can see here: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/04/19/saved-by-the-bell-themed-diner-announces-chicago-location-opening-date/

JJ Watt and Kate Hudson a new item!

Posted on: April 14th, 2016 by Candy

Did a new relationship just kickoff?

On Monday night, Kate Hudson, who normally roots for the Denver Broncos, spent an evening with celebrated defensive end for the Houston Texans, J.J. Watt.

During their night, the two played with the Snapchat filter that puts a halo of stars around your head. “Apparently, the stars belong to the hottest person on the date,” Watt said as he looked into the camera and Hudson giggled. “That’s why Kate wins.”

Since ending her engagement to Muse singer, Matt Bellamy, in 2014, Goldie Hawn’s daughter has been linked to Nick Jonas.

As far at Watt’s love life goes, he was seen hanging out with tennis player Caroline Wozniacki last year before bumping into his “lifetime crush” and Hudson’s Mother’s Day co-star, Jennifer Aniston.

Now, we’re wondering if the three-time winner of the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award has updated his celebrity crush list.

USA TODAY has reached out to Hudson’s rep about their evening.
