I’m a massive “The Walking Dead” fan. I’ve read the comics, and watched every episode of the hit TV show. I even make imaginary judgment calls by inserting the backdrop of a zombie apocalypse into a given situation. By the way, always pick the bicycle as your mode of transportation when the biters rise.
It doesn’t need gas. Furthermore, it’s a way to stay in shape, and it’s easily carried over and around obstacles. Of course, the bike only works when talking about real shambling zombies. Movies, similar to “28 Days Later”, where getting “infected” turns a person into a zombie Usain Bolt require a much different tact.
Now my friends know not to engage me in a conversation about zombies, lest they lose an entire afternoon discussing our strategy for the first 2 hours of a zombie outbreak. However, my friends know my love for the genre, and can’t stop themselves from asking how I live without cable during seasons of “The Walking Dead.”
When Does The Walking Dead Start
At San Diego Comic Con, the premier date for Season 7 of The Walking Dead was announced. Season 7 of The Walking Dead will premier on October 23th 2016 at 9 p.m E.T. I for one can’t wait to see the resolution of the Season 6 Cliffhanger with the introduction of the Comics most intriguing villain, Negan.
Below are the channels and services where you can watch The Walking Dead.
What Channel is Walking Dead On
The Walking Dead is on AMC at 9pm EST on Sundays. Also note that AMC has aired the First Episode live on AMC.com for the past few Seasons without needing a pay TV provider login. If you do not have cable or satellite TV, you can watch the rest of this season of The Walking Dead online using the sources listed below.
The Walking Dead on Sling TV
The easiest way is through Sling TV, which provides access to AMC without a cable subscription. Sling TV Also Provides access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, TBS, TNT, CNN, Food Network, Cartoon Network, ABC Family, A&E, History Channel, Disney Channel and much more for $20 per Month.
That’s a great value considering that those are the most watched cable TV networks. There is no contract required and you get a 7 day free trial. If you sign up for 3 months, they’ll even give you a free Roku.
The best part is having access to all of AMCs programming so you can catch “Talking Dead” with Chris Hardwick after The Walking Dead premier.
It’s just like having AMC though cable, but without all the hassle and expense of cable TV. You get to watch the show live with everyone else.
Buy The Latest Season of The Walking Dead Online
Shows can be purchased the day after airing from iTunes or Amazon for just $1.99 per episode for standard definition. It’s $2.99 to buy the episode in HD. They even offer to purchase the entire season of a TV show for approximately $30.
For those interested in catching season 7 of “The Walking Dead”, a season pass or individual episodes can be purchased through my affiliate link below. Once purchased, it can be enjoyed on a tablet or television by simply logging into the Amazon App with the same account used to purchase the show.

Typically, when I say this people balk at paying. However, they’re forgetting that I’m not paying $150 per month for a triple play package. That allows me to craft my TV experience by supplementing my $10 a month Netflix subscription with hit cable TV shows airing right now.
For instance, let’s assume 5 shows we watch per year aren’t available on Netflix. Remember, these are cable TV shows. Anything on broadcast networks can be viewed on TV in HD by using an antenna.
Season passes to these 5 shows will cost $150 dollars. Break that down over 12 months and the cost is only $12.50 a month for the added content. Furthermore, these aren’t rentals. We are purchasing the content, allowing episodes to be watched whenever one pleases.
People that buy their favorite shows on Blu-Ray can factor this in as an additional cost savings. Plus, the content’s available the day after an episode airs, which means not waiting a year for the Blu-Ray release.
Adding the Netflix subscription and my antenna brings the cost of all my TV content to $22.50. I’d consider that an unbeatable value. A person can essentially build their entire TV viewing solution for the cost of an HBO subscription.
The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vue
PlayStation Vue is another service like Sling TV that offers AMC. You can check out my full review of Playstation Vue for more information.
