The hackers behind the recent HBO breach earlier this week, who claim to have leaked unaired episodes of the network's shows, including the highly popular fantasy drama Game Of Thrones, have now threatened to release additional content from the hack on the coming Sunday.

In an automated email reply sent to Variety, the hackers wrote that they will "release the leak gradually every week," adding that the next release may come on "Sunday".

The group also repeated its claim that it had obtained a total of 1.5 terabytes of data when it broke into HBO's computer networks.

The news first broke out on Tuesday when the hackers released a handful of unaired episodes of HBO shows, as well as other internal data, online.

How Bad Is the HBO Hack? the Company Is Still Struggling to Find Out

The network has acknowledged the hack, but has not given out any details about the types of files hackers were able to obtain.

On Tuesday, a company called IP-Echelon filed a report with Google on behalf of HBO, noting that the named website "shares thousands of Home Box Office (HBO) internal company documents." IP-Echelon. regularly files such copyright-infringement notices on behalf of large media entertainment companies, including HBO.

Federal law requires Internet companies like Google to remove links to sites that infringe copyright once they receive such notifications. Google routinely forward such notices to the longstanding public-interest repository Lumen, formerly known as Chilling Effects, once it has complied.
