Starz is hitting back legally after episodes of its hit show “Power” were leaked earlier this week, the cable channel said.
“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room,” said Starz in a statement Wednesday. “This seems to be a case of password sharing that resulted in homemade videos of the episodes which were taped off a TV screen and posted online.”
Starz also confirmed that it had started “forensic investigations” to determine who leaked the episodes and planned to “take legal action against the responsible parties.”
The episodes were leaked in full on social media earlier this week before they were eventually taken down.
Deadline reports that tracking down the culprit may not be that hard because “the leaker filmed the episodes off a phone and post them on his personal social media with commentary…”
“So not exactly a criminal mastermind of Ghost or Kanan proportions at work here,” they added.
