Watching “The Walking Dead” live without cable is getting a lot easier, and so isn’t catching up on old episodes.

This definitive guide on how to watch or live stream The Walking Dead will help you catch up on all the episodes including prior seasons.

How to watch The Walking Dead Season 10

To get AMC without cable, you can tap into a number of live TV streaming services.

All of these services require an Internet connection because you are live streaming channels online instead of having them routed into your home over a cable cord or satellite feed. 

If you’re paying a lot for Internet, or have recently been quoted a high rate, read my guide on how to get Internet without cable at a decent price.

When does The Walking Dead Season 10 start?

  • Network: AMC
  • Best Way to Stream: Philo (free 7-day trial)

How to stream Season 1 through Season 9 of The Walking Dead

The least expensive way to catch up on Seasons 1 through 9 of The Walking Dead is with a Netflix subscription. Given that there are more Netflix subscribers than cable subscribers in U.S. households, there’s a good chance you already have most of the shows available to you.

Hey listen, I understand not everyone is a Netflix-head. There are plenty of people out there who happily chug along in their TV viewing life with an antenna and an OTA DVR. Nothing wrong with that.

Amazon is an alternative to stream Seasons 1 through Season 9 of The Walking Dead. An episode of The Walking Dead goes for about $3 these days. Apple TV fans can do the same through the iTunes store.

But really, Netflix is the best value to binge watch earlier seasons.

Streaming Netflix in HD costs between $12.99 per month. Netflix works on just about any major streaming device like a Roku or Amazon Fire TV. So even if you signed up for only a few months, your cost would be much less than buying full seasons.

Watch The Walking Dead without cable on Sling TV

Sling TV has the AMC channel in its entry-level channel bundle, called Sling Orange, which costs $25 per month for 30+ channels.

If you want to DVR episodes, the Cloud DVR option is an extra $5 per month. Sling TV does have on-demand content, but I wouldn’t rely on this for catching up or binge watching The Walking Dead. Like I said: right now Netflix currently has the rights to stream Seasons 1 through 6.

Sling TV also has channels like A&E, History Channel, ESPN, Bravo, FS1, FS2, FX, HGTV and both Nat Geo and Nat Geo Wild. The Sling Orange bundle has a free 7-day trial without any obligation. Just be sure to cancel just before day 7 rolls around.

If you’re planning on subscribing to Sling TV to take in all of Season 8 of The Walking Dead, then there are a couple of promotions worth considering.

Prepay for two months of service, and you can get an AirTV Mini. This streaming stick generally retails for $79.

Prepay for three months and you can get a Roku Ultra for only $50. An Ultra would cost twice that if you bought it on Amazon. With either promotion, you can make your money go a bit further by picking up a streaming device.

The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vue

The entry-level plan for PlayStation Vue is called Access, which gives you AMC and roughly 48 other channels for $44.99 per month. PS Vue works on major streaming devices like Roku. With Access, you can get Animal Planet, ESPN, FX and FXX. Cloud DVR comes with the subscription at no extra cost.

Sony offers a free 5-day trial with no obligation.

fuboTV: Watch The Walking Dead Without Cable

fuboTV now carries AMC Networks, which includes AMC, IFC, Sundance TV and BBC America to its sports-first channel lineup. A subscription to the entry-level channel bundle called Fubo Premier gets you 70+ channels. FS1, FS2, NBCSN, CBS, CBS Sports Network, NFL Network, Golf Channel, A&E, History and Travel Channel are included. fuboTV has 80 percent of the regional sports networks offered in the U.S. 

fuboTV has 30 hours of Cloud DVR and a “lookback” feature which is similar to an on-demand option for games that aired in the last 72 hours. You can also add Showtime to your subscription for $10.99 per month. 

You can try out fuboTV free for 7-days. The regular rate of $54.99 per month kicks after that. 

Philo: Watch The Walking Dead live stream

The least expensive way to watch a live stream of The Walking Dead on AMC is through Philo. The 58 channel lineup has A&E, Animal Planet, AMC, BBC America, Comedy Central, History, Nickelodeon, Travel Channel and Sundance TV.

Philo is available on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV devices and has an iPhone app. You can also watch on supported web browsers on Android devices, Macs and PCs.

There’s limitless Cloud DVR and on-demand for the majority of shows. You can read my review of Philo that I wrote after subscribing for three months.

You can also use Philo to sign in to the AMC app to catch up on prior episodes of The Walking Dead. Philo has TV Everywhere support for almost every channel that it carries, and you can even use your login credentials to watch authenticate apps on other devices like XBox One.

Sign up for a free trial of Philo with your phone number. The setup is super quick.

Watch The Walking Dead Online on YouTube TV

YouTube TV has AMC, but the live streaming service is only available in a small number of cities across the U.S. That’s likely to change later in 2017. For $35 per month, YouTube TV offers 40+ channels, including USA Network, FX and IFC. Right now, you need to use a Chromecast or Airplay via Apple TV to live stream on YouTube TV. But that’s like to change by this fall — maybe even in time for Season 8 – so stay tuned.

You can check out a free trial with YouTube TV if it’s available in your area. YouTube TV will also send you a heads up email once their service becomes available in your area.

Is The Walking Dead on Hulu?

No. The Walking Dead is not available on Hulu. It’s also not available on Hulu with Live TV. That may change at some point. But for now, Netflix has the rights to stream Seasons 1 through 9.

What’s the best way to live stream The Walking Dead?

Philo is the best choice for watching The Walking Dead without cable because you can’t beat the price.

So long as you have a Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV or Android TV device, you can live stream on your TV, or watch on a PC, Mac, iPhone or Android device. Do a quick signup with Philo to get a free week-long trial.

Sling TV also has a free 7-day trial. Sling TV’s Orange plan costs $25 per month for 30+ channels including AMC.

Just be sure to cancel a little early to avoid being charged if you get a free trial and don’t want to keep the service.
