A brand new TV-series called The Walking Dead recently appeared on BitTorrent. The plot of the series is based on comic book of Robert Kirkman and its first episode was scheduled to be released in the end of October. However, the 90-minute premiere series became widely available on file-sharing services throughout the world before that date.
Actually, several years ago the tag “PREAIR” wasn’t a rare thing. It is mostly used on peer-to-peer and Scene releases, showing that a TV series leaked to the web much earlier than it was scheduled to air on TV. During the summer of 2007 as many as eight new episodes appeared online with this tag within just a week, including such popular series as Dexter, Chuck, and Weeds. Meanwhile, in recent years, there have remained less PREAIR releases. Actually, until the fall season of the current year, the only notable leak of such kind was an episode of Weeds.
However, regardless of such declining trend, there still remain a number of quite notable PREAIR releases like the most recent premiere episode of The Walking Dead, which appeared in the Internet a few days ago. This new series is written and produced by Frank Darabont, famous for such movies as The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption. The series is based on the comic book of the same name, telling the story of a number of people survived after a zombie apocalypse.
The Walking Dead’s official premiere was scheduled in the United States on the AMC network on the last day of October. However, thousands of file-sharers have already downloaded the episode from the Internet. Although the file’s quality is not perfect, it is still good enough to watch.
Although AMC still hasn’t officially commented the leaks, they will less likely be bothered by the free publicity. Some of the observers even suggest that such leaks might be intentional, because broadcasters may want to use them in order to hype the video just before the start of the season. Of course, it’s often impossible to prove, but the critics say that it’s not the first time this has happened.
Back in 2007, one of the Warner Bros executives admitted he was responsible for making the leak of the pilot of “Pushing Daisies” available. He simply wanted to ensure the show, as he said, “got out there,” believing that his goal was to help this happen. Although he wasn’t the one who uploaded the file online, he used his neighbor’s child to do that instead.
