Exclusive Walking Dead Webisodes Launch New App

Hungry for a fresh fix of zombie apocalypse goodness? You're in luck - FOX UK has just announced the launch of FOX Fan, a free news and entertainment content app available to download on iOS devices. And it launches with the exclusive presentation of brand new webisodes of The Walking Dead , just ahead of season four arriving in the UK this Friday.

Webisode one is titled "The Oath". Pitched as "a thought-provoking tale" - chin-stroke alert! - it's the story of a desperate and injured couple fleeing a zombie incursion to seek help at a medical centre. But the undead may be the least of their worries - turns out their saviour has some very dubious moral ethics... Obamacare. You know it makes sense.

"Our brand new webisodes provide viewers with a thrilling new parallel storyline to sink their teeth into," says Sergio Falcon, Fox's VP of Digital Media Europe. "The new FOX Fan iOS app gives viewers inside access to recent news and content from their favourite shows."

FOX Fan is available on the App Store. Season four of The Walking Dead launches on FOX UK on 18th October at 10pm.
