When it's in-season, The Walking Dead is AMC's weekly gift to zombie-loving, post-apocalyptic TV lovers everywhere. But if you don't have cable, your DVR fails, or you forgot to buy a television, you'll need to know how to watch The Walking Dead online.
As a service to our readers (it's all about you!), we've assembled a helpful list of ways you can watch the remaining members of the human race battle it out with undead hordes on all sort of devices.
iTunes Apple's iTunes Store carries every single episode of The Walking Dead, from Season 1 through the most recent episode of Season 5. You can purchase to watch on your Mac/PC, iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. You can purchase individual episodes for $2.99, or buy a full season. Your choice.
Netflix Ah, Netflix. Everyone's favorite source for TV gone by. If you have a subscription ($8 a month), you can stream Seasons 1-4 of The Walking Dead on whatever device Netflix is available. That means your iPhone or Android device, your home computer, tablet, Tivo — honestly, Netflix is everywhere.
Amazon Instant While The Walking Dead isn't available on Amazon's Netflix competitor, Prime Instant, you can still purchase episodes from Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 on Amazon Instant, then stream them on whatever device has the video service installed. Like Netflix, Amazon Instant is available for many, many platforms: PlayStation 3, various televisions, XBOX, Tivo, Kindle HD, iPad, and more. We're still waiting on the iPhone/Android version.
Other Ways to Watch Online If you're not interested in watching the show using the services we've already painstakingly assembled for you, there are other companies, like Vudu, that will happily take your money in exchange for past episodes of The Walking Dead. Or, you can check out our friends at SideReel to get the lowdown on where you can watch.
The Walking Dead Season 5 airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
