This Sunday marks the midseason premiere of the hit AMC series The Walking Dead, but if you’re looking to view the episode before it airs, the folks a Microsoft and Xbox made things easy for you on Saturday morning. Xbox users woke up on Saturday to find that the new, yet to be aired episode of The Walking Dead was in Xbox Video — free of charge.
If this seems like it was too good to be true, it only sort of was. While the episode cost users who viewed the episode absolutely nothing, the episode wasn’t supposed to be there. A few crafty users on Reddit managed to watch the episode and post about it online before AMC and Xbox both realized the mistake that was made and pulled the episode out of the video store.
The episode is no longer in the store, as the Reddit users even commented in real time about the code changing which signaled a change in the Xbox matrix. The change was the episode being removed, but this marks the second time this season that a premiere has been leaked. The season premiere was leaked early on Google Play, and now the mid-season premiere was leaked early as well.
