The rivalry between the two fantasy series par excellence that arrived in the past year is also evident by looking at the ranking with the 10 titles that users have seen most illegally: here is the complete list.

Like every year, even at the end of 2022 the site TorrentFreak released the list of 10 most illegally downloaded TV series. Among all, this is the most ignoble ranking given how much piracy damages the audiovisual market every year. Yet it is often the one that puts the reality of the facts on paper, showing us which series have really captivated the public, so much so as to push users to enjoy the episodes even through unorthodox methods. If in recent years the Marvel series had been the protagonists of this list, the phenomenon has returned to the fore in the past year game of Thronesthanks to the spin-off de Game of thrones House of the Dragon. The rivalry, wanted or not but still inevitable, with The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power it also manifests itself in this Top 10. Who will have won? Here she is full ranking.

TorrentFreakwhich processes data from BitTorrent trackers and those reported by sites such as I Know What You Downloadlets know that House of the Dragon topped the list of the most pirated TV shows of 2022. According to the site, the spin-off has officially surpassed even the parent series, Game of thrones, which has long dominated this ranking (for three years in a row) even after the finale aired. In second place on the list we find The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (TorrentFreak doesn’t give numbers but does tell us that the Prime Video franchise is within a “respectable distance” of House of the Dragon which, however, won this not too edifying contest by winning the primacy of most pirated series).

Interestingly, the list includes 10 new TV series that debuted in 2022 and does not include new seasons of existing shows. Even Rick and Morty, a fixture in this chart for the past few years, has been ousted by brand new titles. Furthermore, unlike in previous years, there is a greater balance between the various and most popular streaming video platforms (Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and HBO Max), in this way all equally penalized by illegal streaming. In an increasingly fragmented streaming landscape, it’s sadly no surprise that users are looking at piracy as a an alternative to subscribing to yet another season ticket.
