Where to watch The Walking Dead online
Unless you've got Foxtel, it's easy to get left behind with the latest viral television series and The Walking Dead (generally) no exception. However, there is a way you can devour hours of The Walking Dead for free.
The Walking Dead has just wrapped up its sixth season (can you believe it?) and if you're like us, you've got some catching up to do. Never fear, we've tracked down the ways you can catch up with Rick, Carol, Daryl and Michonne (if they're all still alive) online and for free by taking advantage of some of the streaming video-on-demand free trials available in Australia.
Where can I watch The Walking Dead in Australia?
While Netflix in the US seems to have every great television show under the sun, Netflix Australia can leave a little to be desired. Since the closure of Presto, Foxtel Play has become the only place in Australia you can stream new episodes of The Walking Dead. If you're particularly savvy, you can binge all six seasons without paying a cent. If you're looking to catch up on older seasons, there's also the option to buy each episode or season on iTunes or Google Play.
The Walking Dead Season 7
Season 7 of The Walking Dead kicks off the moment Season 6 wrapped up: with one of Rick's crew about to meet the business end of Negan's baseball bat.
Negan seemingly beats Rick's crew into subservience, but before too long it becomes clear the Alexandrians have a plan to take the war to Negan and his crew.
This season introduces a range of new characters, including but not limited to fan favourite Ezekiel and his pet tiger, Shiva.
