The most anticipated HBO drama series “Game of Thrones” has hit a viewership subscription of 12.1 Million views yesterday after it premiered its finale episode of its 7th episode becoming HBO’s most viewed show ever.
In a report released by Nielsen, it states that the episode “The Dragon and the Wolf” was seen by 12.1 million viewers.
HBO said when views from streaming service HBO Go and its stand-alone HBO Now app are included, that number rises to a whooping 16.5 million viewers.
The 12.1 million viewers is a 36 percent improvement from last season finale which was seen by 8.9 million people.
The previous record for the most watched HBO show belonged to, fittingly, episode 5 of the 7th season Game of Thrones, which was seen by 10.7 million viewers.
HBO added that this season averaged 31 million viewers per episode once all live, time-shifted, on-demand, and streaming views are included.
This is another record set by the show.
