Well it has finally happened. Time for AT&T's first dispute of 2020 this time it is AMC Networks. For the first time ever this will impact all FIVE AT&T video services: Affected Channels: AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, WeTV and AMC Premiere (streaming ad-free add-on to AMC's TV Everywhere app) DirecTV AT&T TV AT&T TV Now AT&T WatchTV WatchTV customers don't get access to the TV Everywhere services except for HBO/HBO Max. U-Verse TV According to the articles (and the FCC complaint) AT&T's current agreement ends on August 31, 2020. This also includes AMC's legacy AMC Premiere streaming service that provides ad-free experience to AMC's programming though AMC's TV Everywhere app for an additional $4.99/mo. AMC Premiere is tied to a MVPD carriage agreement. AMCN notes in the complaint they started negotiations early with AT&T to avoid last minute crunches. AMCN believes AT&T is abusing its MVPD market power and treating them unfairly, including their new streaming bundle AMC+, when compared to AT&T owned TNT & HBO that are targeted to the same audience as AMC. AMC+ replaces AMC Premiere and still requires the customer to have the main AMC channel on an MVPD. AMC+ is a streaming bundle that includes original series from AMC, IFC and SundanceTV. It also includes AMCN's other streaming services Shudder, SundanceNow, IFC Films Unlimited along with an ad-free linear network. Comcast was the first to reach a deal with AMCN that includes this bundle for $4.99/mo (same price as AMC Premiere.) Dish Network was the second MVPD to reach a deal (shocking) that includes Sling TV. Dish Network & Sling TV customers pay $7/mo for the AMC+ add-on bundle. There is also a second bundle called WE tv+ that features programming from WE TV and the streaming service UMC (Urban Movie Channel). Comcast also prices this add-on bundle at $4.99/mo. The news articles don't have Dish/Sling down as carriers of WE tv+ but if you go into modify your programming on Sling (or re-subscribe) you can find the option to add the WE tv+ bundle for $6/mo. AMC is trying to get MVPDs and vMVPDs to offer the AMC+ bundle (and most likely the WE tv+ bundle) to their customers as part of carriage agreements. Even though the complaint is largely redacted AMCN's complaint suggests AT&T has presented them with "discriminatory carriage agreement terms." AT&T refutes AMCN's claims that they are treating them unfairly.
