Lovefilm takes a bite of zombie TV show The Walking Dead

Amazon-owned Lovefilm has announced a deal to bring the award-winning zombie show The Walking Dead to their LoveFilm instant platform. The show has been running for three seasons, and the latest saw its highest ratings yet, with 12.4m viewers.

Earler this week Lovefilm announced a tie-up with Disney, allowing customers to stream titles including Wall-E and Ratatouille.

Chris Bird, director of film strategy said:

Securing the exclusive streaming rights to The Walking Dead is another exciting development for us. It is seriously impressive that the show has become one of the most-watched drama series in basic US cable history, and a real testament to its quality. We are thrilled to bring this great content to our members, especially as we are the only subscription service in the country to do so.
