How To Watch “The Walking Dead” Online In The UK: Season 11 And Past Seasons

This post may contain affiliate links*

The Walking Dead is taking a break – but will soon return with the next part of the last season – Season 11. UK Cord cutters might wonder – where can I watch The Walking Dead online, or on TV, without a cable TV subscription? There are several options which I’ll cover here.

For those who are either new to the series, or need a refresher, The Walking Dead is a TV series based on the comic book created by Robert Kirkman. The TV version was originally developed by Frank Darabont (who directed The Shawshank Redemption, among others), who left during the second season due to creative and financial differences.

The Walking Dead is a horror drama, showing a post-apocalyptic world infested with zombies, or “Walkers” as they’re called on the show. Series regular – and the former star of the show – Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) has left the series – though he will return for a series of movies.

Season 11 started with 8 explosive episodes, with the last one (for now) airing on October 10. The next batch of episodes will return in February 

In total, Season 11 will consist of 24 episodes.

In the UK, Part 2 of Season 11 will premiere on February 21, on Disney+, one day after its US airing.

Where Can I Watch The Walking Dead In The UK – Past And Current Episodes?

In the US, The Walking Dead airs on the AMC cable network, and in the UK it used to air on Fox UK – which recently shut down. Therefore, it’s also no longer available on Sky and NOW.

Cord cutters, therefore, have several options for watching the show – both past seasons and the upcoming newest one. First, no – The Walking Dead does NOT air on Netflix in the UK. Past seasons are available on Netflix in the US though – here’s how to watch US Netflix in the UK.

All past episodes of The Walking Dead are now available on Disney+ in the UK, including Season 11, and the upcoming Part 2 of the last season.

1. Disney+ Star – Seasons 1-11

Disney’s streaming service launched “Star” this year, their adult-oriented category which is part of Disney+, and now The Walking Dead is a part of it.

All the older seasons (1-10) are available for streaming, with Part 1 of Season 11 also now available. Part 2 will premiere in February.

For Disney+, you can get a monthly subscription, or an annual one which is a bit cheaper.

Pros

Cons

Watch On: Disney+ website, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, Smartphones, Gaming consoles and Smart TVs

2. Amazon Prime Video – Seasons 1-11

Amazon’s video on demand library offers all past seasons of The Walking Dead. There’s a catch, however – Series 1 to Series 9 are available via Amazon Prime Instant Video (Read our review), for the same subscription fee you normally pay.

Seasons 10 and 11 (Part 1) are only available, for now, as a separate purchase.

Pros

Cons

Watch On: Amazon’s website, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Smartphones, Gaming consoles (NO Chromecast or Apple TV for now).

Quick Tip: With Amazon, you can also go the old-fashioned way, and get past seasons on DVD.

3. Google Play Store – Seasons 1-9

Google’s play store offers all past seasons of The Walking Dead, but Season 10 isn’t available yet, and will probably show up there once the whole season ends.

However, it’s a video on demand store – there are no subscription options, and you would have to buy each episode separately.

Pros

Cons

Watch On: Chromecast, certain models of Smart TVs, Roku, smartphones and certain other devices via the YouTube app (No direct Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV support).
