I am a huge Netflix fan despite its recent struggles with the new DVD spin off company, the huge hike in pricing and the somewhat comical stock situation. You really have to wonder when a company makes such a big move and the stock then drops from record highs firmly into the toilet, does that make the CEO more secure or less secure in his position? Despite all the ruckus lately though Netflix has been adding boatloads of new content in the last few weeks and today comes a huge announcement for those of us who can not get enough of AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Netflix Inc. and AMC Networks Inc. have reached a multi-year licensing agreement that will make prior seasons of AMC’s critically-acclaimed original series, The Walking Dead, available exclusively to Netflix members in the U.S. and Canada. Season 1 of The Walking Dead will be available today. With that said although Netflix has announced its available today I can tell you that I just logged into my Netflix account and did not find it under the New Arrivals.
I also went through the effort of doing a search on Netflix for The Walking Dead and also came up empty handed. So I am sure it will appear shortly on Netflix but as of right now its a no show.
Additional seasons of The Walking Dead, as well as certain future AMC and Sundance Channel programming, will be streaming instantly to Netflix members just prior to the premiere of subsequent seasons.
The second season of Walking Dead starts October 16th before it does be sure to read Luke’s recap of Walking Dead Season 1
