HBO

In what must have come as a shock to precisely nobody, it was revealed that ‘Game of Thrones’ was the most pirated show of 2016 – a title it has held for the fifth consecutive year.

Despite its massive and continued popularity, the HBO fantasy show has still attracted the attention of illegal streamers and downloaders more than any other television series throughout 2016, and was the most downloaded show on BitTorrent, in data compiled from a number of sources by torrent-tracking site TorrentFreak.

Impressively (but not for the show’s makers) ‘Game of Thrones’ has held this dubious distinction since 2012, and the interest in the series displays no sign of abating.

Hollywood A-lister Natalie Portman is set to make her television debut in a new HBO mini-series ‘We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves’, adapted from the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel and executive produced by ‘Friends’ co-creator Marta Kauffman.

Outside of a guest spot on ‘The Simpsons’, the new drama series will be the first time that 35 year old Portman has starred in a TV show. Her decision to branch out into the small screen from Hollywood is reflective of a growing trend of major names making the same move.
