Bid to stop Game of Thrones stream
GAME Of Thrones broadcaster HBO has sent "take down" notices to Periscope, the Twitter-owned live-streaming video app, after users broadcast new episodes of the hit show (right) as it aired on TV.
HBO has criticised the app for not doing enough to spot piracy and copyright infringement, as the much-anticipated fifth series of the TV series began in the US on Sunday night, and here on Monday.
Periscope is a free app that enables users to broadcast a live stream from their smartphone camera of anything they wish.
Game Of Thrones has recently been revealed to be one of the most pirated TV shows in the world.
