AMC Will Place a 6-Second Ad at the Start of Each Walking Dead Episode

6-second ads are coming to the Walking Dead.

The ad will appear in an isolated slot precisely at 9 p.m. as DVRs will start recording.

This will be one of the most expensive ad spots available during the show falling somewhere between the cost of a 15s and 30s.

Smart. AMC is combining the shorter ad spot with a part of the show with high attention.
