The executive producer of Game of Thrones has said he regrets fans not easily being able to get hold of the series digitally.

Chris Newman said it was a "compliment" that the show was the most illegally downloaded TV programme for the past few years running.

He was speaking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Chi Chi Izundu while on a set visit of the show in Iceland.
