Watching Season 11 of The Walking Dead live without cable is pretty easy. And so isn’t catching up on old episodes. You don’t need to subscribe to cable or become a cord cutting expert if you want to start watching TWD from Season 1.
This definitive guide takes you through all your options step by step. The Walking Dead is one of the easiest of AMC’s shows to binge watch.
How to watch Season 11
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.
How to stream Season 1 through Season 10 of The Walking Dead
The cheapest way to catch up on Seasons 1 through 10 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 10 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 $13.99 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.
