The power of “Game of Thrones” hasn’t waned, for better or worse.

HBO can’t be too happy about the news that its hit fantasy series is once again the most downloaded show on BitTorrent, which allows users to share files, according to the site TorrentFreak. It’s the fifth year in a row that “Game of Thrones” has landed at the top of the list of illegally downloaded shows.

The pay cable network’s new sci-fi offering “Westworld,” meanwhile, has not only been a boon in traditional ratings – it’s driving quite a lot of piracy, too.

Here are the most torrented TV shows worldwide in 2016 according to TorrentFreak:
