Companion show to the main Walking Dead series, this time set in LA. Coming to new channel AMC Global, which it looks like is a multi-year carriage deal with BT… So, you can get it on BT’s YouView (if you have BT Broadband… although it’ll make watching it hard with it stuttering and crashing all the time) or IF you have the £20 a month BT Sport package on Sky, you have AMC Global thrown in with it for ‘free’. But it won’t be in HD on Sky. It will also be streamed onto Amazon Prime (and released on DVD/BD) if you’re happy to wait a little while!
