Breaking Bad to get a full UK TV run
New Freeview channel Spike has picked up the UK broadcast rights to the entire run of Breaking Bad and will start showing the first season when the channel launches in April. Previously both Five USA and FX have broadcast the first two seasons in the UK but dropped it when it didn't pick up a significant audience.
In addition to the chemistry-turned-drug overlord drama, Spike will also premier the fifth season of The Walking Dead in the UK.
Spike launches on 15th April and is a subscription-free channel.
