The Marvel series were a total success in 2021, and that success includes both its premiere on Disney Plus as well as its launch on torrent sites. According to the calculations of Torrent freak, Marvel productions were the most pirated of 2021, with Wandavision proudly occupying the first place.
In addition to Wandavision, so much Loki What The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Hawkeye Y What If…? they took the first half of the list and only The witcher interrupted the success Marvel in the world of piracy, settling in third place:
- The witcher
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
- What If…?
- Rick and morty
- Wheel of time
According to Torrent Freak, this list is based on the number of downloads of series that are released through individual chapters, which in turn tends to disadvantage series that launch their entire season in one go, such as, The Money Heist.
This explains, for example, that both the Spanish series and The Squid Game do not appear on this list, although from the site they assure that if both were released weekly, they would undoubtedly be among the 10 most pirated of the year.
Now, this list reveals what is obvious: piracy does not end with streaming services and with the simplicity of access that they offer. Until a few years ago, game of Thrones It was the most pirated series and in part it could be justified that HBO streaming did not exist or was limited to a few countries. But in 2021, with Disney Plus and other services widely spread throughout the world, everything continues as before and may even be worse.
And is that the proliferation of so many subscriptions inevitably leads to content fragmentation. Therefore, it is understandable that some people prefer to pirate the content rather than pay an extra service to see something very timely. And that’s not to mention that the series and movies appear on torrent sites just released in official services.
