The upcoming Season 9 midseason premiere of “The Walking Dead” will be available a week before it premieres on AMC — for AMC Premiere customers, that is.
The long-running series’ winter return will be available to AMC Premiere customers on the afternoon of Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3, and will remain on the on-demand platform all week, leading into the installment’s official linear premiere at 9 p.m. on Feb. 10 on AMC.
AMC Premiere is a commercial-free service available through the AMC app to viewers who receive AMC as part of a pay-TV package for an additional $4.99 per month. Customers of Comcast, YouTube TV or Fubo TV can subscribe through their provider and Comcast customers with X1 boxes can purchase AMC Premiere directly through the box.
“In addition to commercial-free viewing of our original series, AMC Premiere customers have enjoyed a variety of other benefits like early access to premieres and the ability to binge full seasons of some shows before they appear on our linear network,” Mac McKean, executive vice president of innovation for AMC Networks, said. “Last fall, we offered the season nine premiere of ‘The Walking Dead’ one day early and it resulted in the single biggest day of new sign-ups in the history of this new platform. In addition to this full week of early access to our mid-season premiere, we are planning to add bonus show content for AMC Premiere customers across the second half of season nine.”
“The Walking Dead” Season 9 midseason premiere will air Feb. 10 at 9/8c on AMC. But if you want to see it early, you know where to find it.
