The second half of season 4 of “Fear the Walking Dead” is finally underway after the summer break, with the mid-season premiere airing on AMC Sunday night. But you don’t have to wait to watch the next episode — you can, in fact, watch it right now using the new AMC Premiere streaming service.
There are some caveats to this, of course. First, you need a qualifying TV subscription the same way you would to watch anything on AMC.com or on the app. And then you have to pay a subscription fee of $5 a month for the Premiere service.
And you will need, depending on what TV service you have, is the appropriate device for streaming. On AT&T U-verse, for example, you must use the AMC app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android or Amazon Fire TV in order to use AMC premiere — you can’t just use the service on AMC.com. You can find out the requirements for your service on AMCPremiere.com right here or in the AMC app.
In addition to this early episode of “Fear the Walking Dead,” the five bucks for AMC Premiere also gets you commercial-free viewing of all on-demand content from AMC, as well as more episodes than you would normally find from their free on-demand library as Premiere is, essentially, AMC’s proprietary streaming service.
Whether or not you think that’s worth it is up to you, but if you’re looking to get next week’s episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” right now, that’s your only option.
