Despite crackdowns on torrent sites in 2016, internet piracy shows no sign of slowing down. So which shows and movies were the most pirated in 2016?
TorrentFreak has released the rankings after analysing several sources, including BitTorrent trackers.
Despite misleading reports that The Grand Tour was the most downloaded show of all time (here's looking at you Daily Mail) - that title remains in the hands of Game of Thrones.
The epic fantasy series was the most downloaded TV show in 2016. In fact, the show has held the place of the most pirated TV series on BitTorrent for five years in a row now.
According to TorrentFreak, there hasn't been an increase in the number of people sharing torrents of the episodes. However, this doesn't mean there isn't growing interest in the show and growth in piracy - rather the site suggests that more people have simply moved to streaming sites.
While some streaming sites are perfectly legal (e.g. Netflix, Showmax, Hulu, etc.), there are also a multitude of streaming sites which use illegally downloaded videos.
So what other shows interested pirates?
The Grand Tour landed in tenth place, behind series like The Big Bang Theory, Vikings and Suits.
Newcomers to the top ten include Westworld and Lucifer. While it's not surprising that Westworld is among the top pirated shows, it is impressive that the brand new show released in the latter half of the year managed to take third place.

6. The Big Bang Theory
10. The Grand Tour
While binge watching series is an increasingly popular pastime, this doesn't mean that movies aren't also on the agenda of torrent site users.
This year's top ten downloaded movies list was dominated by sci-fi and superhero films. While some movies on the list were box office and critical successes, other movies in the list didn't correlate with commercial success.
For example, Finding Dory, which grossed over $1-billion worldwide made the top ten - which is no surprise.
However films which were considered financial disappointments like Warcraft and Independence Day: Resurgence actually placed higher in the list.
In fact, downloaders don't seem to place much weight on critics' opinions - with heavily criticised films like Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad also placing in the top ten.
The title of most downloaded movie however went to Deadpool - and if you know the internet, this shouldn't surprise you. The foul-mouthed, violent antihero has proved a favourite among internet users, capturing the hearts of many viewers.
