With just under two weeks remaining until AMC premieres “Halt and Catch Fire” on June 1st, the cable network has released the first episode for free on its Tumblr page. The pilot episode is also available on AMC.com and various VOD services including cable providers Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon Fios.
Variety reports it’s the first time a TV show has premiered on Tumblr, now owned by Yahoo, and it also marks the first time AMC has screened an episode early via social media. The episode will be available until May 31st, the day before it debuts on TV.
Indiewire caught the premiere at its SXSW screening in March and gave it an enthusiastic response. There’s more to come on the hotly anticipated new series, but for now head over to the Tumblr page or AMC’s website to see the show for yourself.
