Exclusive to Disney +, The Mandalorian has just won the title of the most downloaded series in the world, according to TorrentFreak. A title paradoxically prestigious since it is synonymous with success and popularity. The last series to win this title was none other than the global Game of Thrones phenomenon.

In the second place, we find another exclusive, The Boys, from Amazon Prime Video this time. A crazy series that features superheroes of dubious morality. HBO Westworld series closes the top 3 most illegally downloaded series in the world.

A simple explanation

Released in November 2019, The Mandalorian series was then the only exclusive content of Disney +, launched at the same time in a very limited number of countries. Last year, the series had already climbed to third place in the ranking of the most downloaded series in the world.

Besides the quality of the series - which is unanimous among Star Wars fans - the new title of The Mandalorian can be explained by the limited availability of Disney + on a global scale. The streaming service of the big-eared firm is indeed only available in a limited number of countries.

The proliferation of streaming services and the limited number of Disney + exclusives may also explain why some Internet users have turned to illegal downloads to enjoy the series.
