Lost breaks download download record


May 27, 2010

The finale of the series that has baffled and confused many viewers, Lost, has become the subject of another record: this time it is downloads, as the show has become a record breaker when around a million users downloaded the last two episodes on BitTorrent.

Around 100,000 users provided the last two episodes via torrent, most of these from outside of the US where it has yet to be seen.

The studios came up with a great idea to slow down the downloading, by allowing the show to be broadcast in almost sixty countries at the same time as the show went out in the US.

15 per cent of the downloads were in Australia, as the show was not broadcast in line with the US premiere.
