Fear the Walking Dead is the prequel series to the AMC smash hit, the Walking Dead. Because it is on a basic cable channel, more than 80% of the US population has access to it. Like many prequel or sequel series, some consider it to be not as good as the original.
The first episode of the show aired on August 23rd in 2015. The first season launched with only 6 episodes. The second season of the show saw an increase to 15 episodes. The rest of the seasons have 16 episodes each. Only time will tell how long this spin-off series will last.
Here are some of the ways you can enjoy this show. If you are traveling outside the US, be sure to connect to a VPN to watch.
Use Sling TV to stream Fear the Walking Dead
Sling TV is a live TV streaming service that offers an easy way to watch the race. This affordable option gives you access to popular pay TV channels, without the need for cable, a satellite subscription, or a contract. If you are a cord cutter or thinking of becoming one, the service is only a fraction of the cost. Of course, prices and number of streams available vary based on the plan you choose. AMC is available in both packages, so prices will vary. You can try Sling TV free for 7 days to test the service.
The Sling TV service may be watched on your favorite television by using streaming devices like Roku, Xbox, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and others. Additionally, it is compatible with Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. There are other devices supported, so you may want to check their website for the latest list.
Using PlayStation Vue to watch Fear the Walking Dead
The PlayStation Vue streaming service (often called PS Vue) is another option you have. It offers the user more than 45 channels for $30 a month without a contract. Those channels include ABC, AMC, Fox, NBCSN, ESPN, and many more. PS Vue does not only focus on sports, but gives you other popular choices as well. It is one of the only services to offer the big 4 US networks. PSVue is offering a 5-day free trial to new users.
It is compatible with PS3, PS4, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, Android, and others. With this one, you have the option of streaming up to 5 devices at one time, and you can also stream and play video games. Those factors make PS Vue a good option to stream the show.
Use DirecTV Now to stream Fear the Walking Dead
DirecTV Now is the stand alone version of the satellite provider, DirecTV. Though some of the streaming services we mention here are focused more on sports, this one has the goal of being a total package. It provides the subscriber more than 60 channels in the starting package for $35 a month with no contract. Those include NBCSN, ESPN, Fox, TNT, and many others. It also includes more than 10,000 on demand channels. You can sign up for a 7-day free trial to see if DirecTV Now is right for you.
The service is usable on Chromecast, Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV. If you are planning on streaming from your PC or Mac, you will need to use Google Chrome or Safari. You are allowed to use 2 devices at one time, and there is a rewind feature so you can replay up to the last 72 hours of TV. That can be a real advantage if you miss part of the race.
