Not Quite the Same? Dish Rolls Out a Freebie for Subscribers Who Are Being Deprived of 'The Walking Dead' Deadline

With the third-season premiere of the AMC hit "The Walking Dead" slated for Oct. 14, subscribers to Dish Network -- which dropped the network in June -- are receiving a make-good of sorts from Dish: a free scary movie every day in October, reports

Dish posted a message to subscribers on its Facebook page saying: ”DISH understands that ‘The Walking Dead’ on AMC is a very popular series. To show appreciation, customers will be provided ‘Tales of the Apocalypse,’ a free scary movie fest every day in the month of October. Starting at 8 PM ET on Blockbuster Studio, channel 102, ‘Walking Dead’ fans can enjoy these horror/science-fiction commercial free movies. Additional On Demand scary movies will also be available for only 10 cents each. Visit for full details as well as the full list of scary movies.”

The list of scary movies includes “Night of the Living Dead,” "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," “Day of the Dead,” “Cyborg," "Re-Animator” and “Invaders From Mars.” Also included in the list, without explanation, is "Slash in Concert."
