Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 leaks Online after HBO Spain accidentally broadcasts it

HBO Spain appears to have accidentally broadcast Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 four days early. The episode was reportedly available on-demand to subscribers for one hour before being removed - long enough for it to be ripped and shared. Footage from the episode was posted on Reddit (we won't link to the thread as it's full of spoilers) via YouTube, Instagram, Twitch and other streaming services, before swiftly being taken down.

Show: Game of Thrones
Season number: 7
Episode number: 6
Air date: August 20, 2017
Previous episode: Eastwatch
Next episode: Episode 67

At the time of writing, the full episode has just started being posted on torrent sites and is being uploaded with the file name 'Game_of_Thrones_-_S07E06.flv' to sites like faster than HBO can take the links down. This is actually not the first time this has happened - an episode of season 6 having been accidentally uploaded by HBO's Nordic arm a few hours before official broadcast. What with the HBO hack and the Indian leak of episode 4, Game of Thrones has had a rough season with spoilers, though it hasn't harmed ratings, with episodes posting recording viewing figures even when they've hit the web early.
