Early this morning, The Walking Dead Mid-Season Premiere went live on Xbox Video for free. Of course, the episode isn’t set to premiere on AMC until tomorrow night. Several Walking Dead fans on Reddit were able to download and watch the episode early while it was live on Xbox Video.
However, once word of the early release started to circulate online, it appears as if Xbox caught their mistake and quickly removed the video. Recent attempts by fans to download The Walking Dead Mid-Season Premiere on Xbox Video have resulted in an error code.
This marks the second time that a Walking Dead Premiere or Mid-Season Premiere has leaked early online through official channels, albeit apparently by accident. Last year, The Walking Dead Season 4 Premiere got released early on Google Play, before the episode aired on Fox. As like with Xbox Video, the mistake was quickly caught and fixed, but not before several fans got an early viewing of the show.
The Walking Dead Season 4 Mid-Season Premiere will be televised for the first time on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
