HardwareUnfortunately, there’s not an easy way to watch The Walking Dead live through streaming hardware — you can find the AMC app on the Fire TV as well as Roku, but unfortunately, you cannot watch live content through the app. You’ll be able to watch on-demand content, such as all of the latest in-season episodes of The Walking Dead, but you won’t be able to catch it live through the AMC app. However, you can sign-up for a separate no-contract streaming service (such as Sling TV; they even offer a free trial, check it out here). You’ll be able to watch The Walking Dead live online this way — you’ll just need to download the corresponding app you sign-up for on your device, whether that be Sling TV, DirecTV Now, etc. Get started with the Fire TV or Roku below.
How To Watch The Walking Dead Live Online Without Cable
1. Sling TV
Like we mentioned already, Sling TV is the best way to watch The Walking Dead online. They stream AMC, so if you’re signed up for Sling’s Orange or Blue a la carte package, you’ll be able to catch The Walking Dead when it airs. Plans are super cheap as well, starting out at just $20 per month, no contract required.
Unlike a regular cable subscription, you can watch Sling literally anywhere — if you’re on the go, but have a few minutes to catch The Walking Dead, you can stream The Walking Dead live online straight from your smartphone or tablet. And when you’re at home, you can watch it from your computer, Smart TV or any streaming device (such as the Roku and Fire TV).
It’s a fantastic package, and you’d be silly to not at least give it a try! In fact, you can take it for a test run (without any charge) with their free 7-day trial. Sign up at the link below.
2. DirecTV Now
Another place you can watch The Walking Dead live online is with DirecTV Now. AMC is part of the “Live a Little” package, which will set you back a monthly fee. However, you’ll still be able to catch The Walking Dead live. Similar to Sling, you’ll be able to watch it live on almost any device — the big downside here is that they’re about more expensive for the same content.

3. YouTube TV
The Walking Dead is also available live on YouTube TV, as Google was able to secure a contract with AMC to provide that. Similar to DirecTV Now, it’ll cost you a monthly fee. It’s available on most devices, but we’d recommend against YouTube TV at this point. They experience a lot of outages, so you’d be better off going with something a little more stable, such as Sling or DirecTV Now.
