For those happy they can watch AMC original programming on directv while dish takes a stand against insane pricing demands. Who gets to make up for the millions in lost subscriber fees when AMC goes dark on July 1st? How can AMC sustain the current lineup of original programming without that revenue? If I was one that would like to see all those shows continue I would not be happy that Directv is not siding with Dish on this and to see a fair resolution for all interested parties.
Those AMC viewers that think they are immune to what is is really happening here either refuse to understand the economics at play or are foolish enough to think this is only a Dish problem.
What?? I am sure there are subs on both sides of the aisle who understand what's going on.... and those who don't.
But you should consider that even if DIRECTV® wanted to fully side with Dish and make AMC go dark tonight, they could not, both for contractual reasons, as well as collusion that'd grab the attention of the Justice Dept.
