Bad news for BT TV customers – they're about to lose some hit shows, among them the new series of 'The Walking Dead'.

That's because BT is losing both Fox and Fox HD channels from March 1st.

The sixth series of 'The Walking Dead' starts on Fox UK on Monday, which means BT customers will only be able to see the first couple of episodes before the channel is taken from them.

According to an email sent to BT customers, Fox "have changed the way they offer their TV channels to TV providers."

As well as 'The Walking Dead', BT customers will lose 'NCIS', 'American Horror Story', 'Wayward Pines', 'Family Guy', 'American Dad!', 'Robot Chicken' and 'Rick and Morty'.

A BT spokesperson told TrustedReviews: "BT is sorry that it will no longer be able to offer the Fox and Fox HD channels on BT TV.

"Unfortunately, Fox is no longer offering its channels to all UK TV platforms, so BT TV customers will no longer be able to view the channels from March 1st.

"We will continue to provide our customers with all our other great TV channels, including Comedy Central, Gold, MTV and the AMC channel, which is exclusive to BT customers."

According to the BT spokesperson, viewers can watch the rest of the new series of 'The Walking Dead' via BT Store, where episodes will go live 24 hours after airing on Fox in the UK.

That will mean paying, though the spokesperson promised they'll be "special offers available on this for our BT TV customers".
