The Walking Dead is back again – with the third part of Season 10. 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 last year (though he will return for a series of movies), and it’ll be interesting to see how things go on without him.
Season 10, the season that began way back in 2019, then returned in 2020, then had its finale postponed because of the pandemic – to October 2020 – is now back with six more episodes, that are presented as Season 10c.
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 normally airs on Fox UK. Cord cutters, however, also have several options for watching the show – both past seasons and the 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.
The third part and final (presumably) part of Season 10 premiered in the US on February 28, 2021.
Here in the UK, the new episodes of Season 10c will air one day after their US broadcast, starting on March 1, 2021.
These are your major options for past and futures episodes:
1. NOW TV – Season 10c
Sky’s on-demand service, meant to compete with Netflix, offers a cheaper price over Sky’s regular TV offerings – and without a lengthy contract (see my guide on getting cheap NOW TV passes).
Past seasons of The Walking Dead are no longer available on NOW TV – they will probably be back at some point, but we don’t know when, yet.
The new episodes, however (the six last Season 10 episodes) will be available on NOW TV from March 1, a day after their US broadcast – First on the live Fox channel, and then on-demand, usually at around 10pm.
2. Amazon Prime Video – Seasons 1-10
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.
Season 10 is only available, for now, as a separate purchase. (including the finale).
The new Season 10c episodes are not available yet.
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.
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).
