Walt Disney has been officially crowned King by the Internet Pirates. Disney +’s streaming series The Mandalorian became the world’s most pirated series in 2020, according to data compiled by TorrentFreak. Previously, AT & T’s HBO long-running Game of Thrones, which held this title for seven years, had dubious fame.
The two shows only overlapped in 2019, which marked the end of an era with the end of Game of Thrones. Game of Thrones retained the crown last year, while The Mandalorian ended up in 3rd place.
Other programs that rounded out the top 10 list of most pirated shows were Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, HBO’s Westworld, Amazon’s Vikings, CBS All Access ‘Star Trek: Picard, Cartoon Network’s Rick & Morty, AMC Networks’ The Walking Dead, ”HBO’s The Outsider, CW’s Arrow, and CW’s The Flash.
Obviously, having the most pirated series in the world isn’t the best outcome from a Disney investor perspective, as every pirated stream is one that isn’t a Disney + paid subscriber. It does, however, underscore the popularity of The Mandalorian, the latest addition to the Star Wars universe that has helped Disney far exceed its subscriber targets – well ahead of schedule.
The original goal was to have between 60 million and 90 million subscribers by 2024. On December 2, just a year after it launched, Disney + had 87 million paying subscribers worldwide, partly due to the pandemic but also due to the program’s popularity. The company has since raised its forecasts and now expects the number of subscribers to grow to 230-260 million by 2024.
