Still from "Game of Thrones" season 3.

The third season of Game of Thrones has set an all-time record for piracy. According to the file-sharing site TorrentFreak, the first episode of the new season had been downloaded more than a million times within just two days of airing on HBO.

HBO's president of programming has said he sees piracy as a "compliment of sorts," but the company is taking the issue very seriously. Brian Steinberg, senior editor at Variety, joins the show with more.
