The Walking Dead and Netflix?

Since I now get AMC in HD, I'm interested in renting Season 1 of The Walking Dead on Blu-ray before I try to get into Season 2. It doesn't appear that Netflix has this available as a disc rental though. I see they are adding it as a streaming show, but I'm one of the few people that doesn't stream movies or TV. Will I just have to buy it?

More than likely it'll be added as a disk rental. I believe they have many tv series that are on streaming but also made available as a rental.

I rented it on Netflix when it first was released so they did have it for rental for a while.

Option A: Contact Netflix customer service
Option B: Ask on a DVD forum

Nicely done!

AMC is running all the S1 eps before the season 2 premiere.

Yes. He got 3 answers in less than 30 minutes.

No way would Netflix customer service be that quick!

I don't know who you have for a cable provider, but, Comcast has all of the S1 episodes on OnDemand in both HD and SD.

Actually, the OP said "they are adding it." As far as I can tell, the title wasn't officially available for streaming until today, as I've checked several times since the deal was announced Friday. So, obviously that explains the post I made.

Of course, it should be noted that not one of them really answered anything.

I just got the discs of Walking Dead from Netflix a couple of weeks ago.

I just rented it at Redbox. Figure it'll take me two nights to watch.
