For the members of the TWD Family on the West Coast of the United States, you can watch the East Coast airing of The Walking Dead online. Here’s how!

If you’re on the West Coast it sometimes feels like you’re behind the eight ball when it comes to television events that aren’t live. In the case of The Walking Dead, you don’t have to worry about waiting until local time to watch, provided you have a computer, an internet connection and a cable subscription.

For those of you members of The Walking Dead family who don’t know, and as a refresher for those who do, it’s possible to watch The Walking Dead at 6pm Pacific Time, which corresponds to the East Coast viewing time. That way you get to see the action as it unfolds without having to stay away from social media until 9pm PT.

To access the show, go to AMC.com and click Browse and then go to Live TV. Here’s a link if you need it. There, you’ll be asked to enter your cable provider information and then you’ll be watching AMC live. The trick, of course, is that this is the East Coast live feed so at 6pm on the West Coast you’re watching the 9pm airing of the show.

Here are a couple of things to note: You can’t watch the live stream if you don’t have cable. You have to enter this information to access live TV on AMC. You also want to go directly to Live Television and not the show, because the link to the latest show will not be there until after the West Coast airing so you will be waiting around for a while before it pops up.

Some streaming sites like Sling TV offer AMC, and you’ll be on the East Coast feed for the show, too, so you don’t have to watch online if you have Sling TV. As always, be sure to check your local provider for more details.
