It is still worth noting that the noise has died down pretty quickly... Dish rode out the speedbump of dropping the AMC channels, and honestly there doesn't seem to be any urgency to add them back.
Ultimately AMC loses in this scenario. The viewers have moved on and found other things to watch now.
Not in our case. We don't watch Breaking Bad
, but Hell on Wheels
is coming up on August 12 and we don't want to miss that or TWD
. So more subscribers will care as these shows premiere, and I'm sure that it will hurt new subcribers making a choice betw. sat. services.
CS informed me today they are "open to negotiations", and seems to think it will be settled eventually
, as TWD
is so popular.
Well, maybe. But I'll be streaming "Hell on Wheels" through Amazon and wishing AMC were still on Dish so I could justify the $15 in order to see BBCA's "Copper".
Dish still has BBCA (in HD, unlike DTV), so you'll be able to see Copper
. We're looking forward to that, too. Jerrry and I are HUGE
British mystery fans. The ones that are not shown in the U.S. I buy on disc and resell after viewing.
Our computer is at work, so we cannot stream at home. IFC has a lot of content which we enjoyed, so we'll make the switch to DTV if the situation is not resolved in the next several weeks.
