Game Of Thrones: Amazon Mistakenly Uploaded Second Episode Early

The upcoming second episode of Games of Thrones have reportedly been mistakenly leaked hours before its premiere on HBO.

According to Variety, the leak first surfaced on reddit and later Twitter despite the efforts of HBO to prevent a leak.

Many Twitter users have started releasing spoilers, much to the annoyance of people who have been waiting a week for the episode.

But some Amazon Prime members were able to watch it several hours before that.

“We regret that for a short time Amazon customers in Germany were able to access episode two of season eight of Game of Thrones,”

“This was an error and has been rectified.” an Amazon spokesman said.

It may have been taken down soon after it was uploaded, but it was long enough for many fans to view the whole episode.

The same thing happened last week when DirecTV mistakenly leaked the first episode four hours before the premiere, although the leak didn’t hinder rating of the popular series.

The first episode of the new season pulled 17.4 million viewers through HBO networks, and streaming options, mainly HBO GO and HBO NOW, to make it the largest night of streaming activity ever on HBO.

“Apparently our system was as excited as we are for Game of Thrones tonight and gave a few DirecTV Now customers early access to the episode by mistake.

“When we became aware of the error, we immediately fixed it and we look forward to tuning in this evening,” a spokesman for AT&T, which owns the service, said.
