‘Game of Thrones’ Episode 6 reportedly leaked online after HBO Spain error

Another episode of HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” may have leaked online.

Reports began swirling on Wednesday that HBO Spain accidentally released Episide 6 of Season 7 days early to on-demand subscribers and it was available for one hour – enough time for hackers to get a hold of it – according to The Independent.

Images on Reddit seemed to confirm the report, but the network told Business Insider that HBO is unaware of a new leak.

The “Game of Thrones” fan community Watchers of the Wall tweeted about the leak late Tuesday, encouraging fans not to share images from the upcoming episode on social media to avoid spoiling the show for its loyal fanbase.

A representative for HBO was not immediately available for comment.

This is not the first episode this season that has found its way to the web.

The fourth episode in the television series’ seventh season leaked three days before its planned Aug. 6 air date and quickly circulated online. On Tuesday, Indian police detained the four suspects in that incident.

Several weeks ago, HBO was hacked, however the “Game of Thrones” episode leaks have apparently been unrelated to the hack.

The network acknowledged the hack in late July, and the thieves have been dribbling out stolen video and documents since then while demanding a multimillion-dollar ransom.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
