Madrid: An upcoming episode of the seventh season of popular fantasy drama TV series was accidentally broadcast in Spain four days before its original scheduled telecast.

The sixth episode of the season was reportedly available on-demand to subscribers by HBO Spain for one hour before being removed, reports independent.co.uk.

Footage from the episode was posted on Reddit via YouTube, Instagram, Twitch and other streaming services, before being taken down.

The full episode is being posted on torrent sites and is being uploaded with the file name "Game_of_Thrones_-_S07E06.flv".

This is actually not the first time this has happened as on many occasions episodes of the show have been leaked prior to the original release date.
