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. Currently, the only options you have for streaming The Walking Dead online in Australia are Foxtel Play and Presto. Luckily, both services offer no lock-in contract and have a free 1 month (Presto) and Try 2 Weeks Free (Foxtel Play). If you're particularly savvy, you can binge all six seasons without paying a cent.
