Sling TV says to watch the day-long preview, new customers can sign up at Sling.com/watchfree starting on Sunday at 8 a.m. ET.  (The free preview will run until 3 a.m. ET on Monday, October 23.)

There will be no requirement to post a credit card number. You will just have to enter your e-mail address.

After signing up, new customers will be able to watch all live channels available in the Orange plan, plus On Demand programming.

In addition to The Walking Dead premiere, which airs at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, AMC will hold a day-long marathon of Walking Dead episodes on the same day.
