By Gabriela Vatu / April 6, 2019

The notion of zombies has always fascinated humanity, so it's no surprise that The Walking Dead and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead are so popular among viewers, even though the actual word is never used. As the latter is preparing to return to the screens, make sure you can watch Fear the Walking Dead live online.

Fear the Walking Dead first aired back in August 2015, so it's now on its fifth season. A lot has changed in the past few seasons, but the post-apocalyptic horror drama continues to attract viewers.

If you're one of the fans who is looking forward to watching Fear the Walking Dead live online, we can help you out with a list of platforms that can help you achieve this dream. The fifth season will start airing on June 2nd, 2019, so you'll be able to have fun with new episodes on Sundays, at 9 PM ET, on AMC.

Can You Watch Fear the Walking Dead on AMC's Website?

The AMC website does come with a live stream which you can access if you login into your account. In order to actually get access to the live stream, however, you need to make sure that you associate an account from your cable provider or live TV platform. You must make proof that you pay for a subscription that includes access to AMC. Let's go ahead and learn even more about watching Fear The Walking Dead Online.

What Live TV Platforms Can Help You Watch Fear The Walking Dead?

For years now, there has been an increasing number of live TV platforms to help those who are hoping to get rid of cable for good. The contrast is so stark that it makes it easy to understand why people would quit on cable since those plans are so expensive, you can't choose what you pay for, and canceling those contracts is a nightmare. Live TV platforms, on the other hand, are cheaper, you can customize them to some extent, and you can cancel your subscription in a heartbeat since there's no contract involved. Plus, live TV platforms can help you watch your shows from wherever you may be, whether that's on the bus, at work, or at home; as long as you have an Internet connection and a smartphone, you're good to go. let's see what options you have to watch AMC's show.

fuboTV - First on our list, we have fuboTV, a platform that started out as a way for people to watch lots of sports. Nowadays, they feature loads of entertainment channels, so your whole family can have fun. There are two bundles to choose from - fubo and fubo Extra - and they both feature AMC. There are a few channel packs to choose between, as well as several premium networks, including AMC Premiere. When you subscribe, you'll also discover there are several packs that bundle up either fubo or fubo Extra, and various add-ons for a better price. Check out our fuboTV review for more details.

Sling TV - Next, we have Sling TV, a platform that comes with loads of customization options. There are three bundles to kick things off - Orange, Blue, and Orange + Blue -, with AMC being part of all of them. You can then build up your plan by adding channel packs grouped by interests and premium networks. You can check out our Sling TV review to understand more about the service.

Philo - Another great platform you can sign up for is Philo. This one is particularly simple since there are only two bundles - 44 Channels and 57 channels. There are no premium platforms to add, or channel packs, or extra features; nothing. AMC is part of both channels, so you can get whichever one you like best, although we do recommend going for the more expensive one since it's just $20 per month. Read our Philo review before making a decision, so you can get loads of details about the service.

YouTube TV - YouTube TV is also one of the platforms you can subscribe to in order to watch Fear The Walking Dead because AMC is part of the channels they offer in the $40 per month bundle. There are few ways to customize this service, and they're all premium networks. One of these networks is actually AMC Premiere, so go ahead and get that one too if you want to watch shows early. Read TechNadu's YouTube TV review to find out all the details about the really great perks the service has to offer subscribers.

DirecTV Now - Following up next, we have DirecTV Now, a service that recently went through a bunch of change. There are now two main bundles called Plus and Max that have 40-50 channels, including HBO (and Cinemax over in Max) and cost quite a bit ($50 and $70, respectively), and five older bundles that got a new name and a new price that's double than what it used to be, called Entertainment, Choice, Xtra, Ultimate, and Optimo Mas. These ones have between 65 and 125 channels and cost between $86 and $135 per month. AMC isn't actually part of either Plus or Max, so your only option is to go for the expensive bundles. If you want more, you can also add premium networks, Spanish-language channel packs, and international packs. Read up on our DirecTV Now review to better understand the service.

PlayStation Vue - Our favorite is coming up next - PlayStation Vue. This one's a great platform that offers four bundles to choose from, named Access, Core, Elite, and Ultra. AMC is part of all four bundles, so you're good to go picking whichever one you like best. You can also add a few channel packs if you want, as well as various premium networks. Loads of details can be found in the PlayStation Vue review we wrote a while back, so check it out.

What Can You Do If You Travel Abroad and Can't Watch Fear the Walking Dead?

Live TV platforms are absolutely great, but much like any other streaming service in the United States, they're all geoblocked. This means that you can't watch the content if you're not in the United States, which can be an inconvenience for anyone who travels often. Now, live TV platforms work like any other website and know where you are by reading your IP address. Thankfully, there are these little tools called VPNs that can change your IP address and make it seem like you're in a different location. In our case, you'll need to appear to be in the US, and that's super easy. Let's see what you need to do.

How Can You Binge on Older Episodes of Fear The Walking Dead?

Well, as soon as the season starts, you're going to be able to check out the latest episodes directly on AMC. Once more, however, you'll need to sign into an account, so you still need to sign up for a live TV platform to make things work. Another way to enjoy the series is by checking out Hulu, where you'll find all four seasons that have already aired, with new episodes to be added later on.

If you'd rather own the seasons or individual episodes, you can also do that by buying them from various platforms like YouTube, Google Play, Microsoft Store, iTunes, Amazon Prime, or Vudu. Make sure to check them all out individually to see whether or not you can find a better price for the season you're looking for since they sometimes have deals you may want to take advantage of.
