Why would you need verficiation? It was added back in March and there's been multiple official announcements about it:mwdxer said:I talked to a friend in Southern California last night and he verified that Direct TV does indeed have BBC World
BBC World News is available via a high quality stream on Livestation worldwide (excluding the UK, US, China, Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia due to rights restrictions)
While they're programmed seperately, the affiliate relations and ad sales in the USA are now handled by AMC Networks:DBSSTEPHEN said:Bbc world news has nothing to do bbc America they are owned by different companies
BBC Worldwide still owns 50.1% of BBC America along with all of BBC World NewsAlso included in the partnership is representation of BBC World News in U.S. distribution and domestic advertising sales.
The expanded distribution is due in part to new carriage deals secured by AMC Networks, which represents BBC World News in distribution, as part of a broader partnership announced in October 2014, and means that the network is now available on a full-time basis in all television markets in the U.S.
At the same time, it must be remembered that Breaking Bad has morphed into Better Call Saul and Mad Men has a month to go. I'm not convinced that these so-called "companion series" (such as Fear the Walking Dead) are guaranteed to be as good as their parents/predecessors.KyL416 said:Yeah because it's not like Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Walking Dead or Mad Men are big hits or anything...
All a network needs is ONE "must watch" show ... and it doesn't need to run year round. Carriage contracts arr multi-year, not month to month. Satellite and cable providers do not want to be the provider without the top show(s). A little leverage goes a long way.harsh said:As I said previously about A&E back in the days of Longmire, a single show at any one time does not a network make.
I don't agree (although it may be true). I see a situation where most wait for whatever it is to come out on disc or streaming service.James Long said:All a network needs is ONE "must watch" show ... and it doesn't need to run year round.
If that were the case, their shows wouldn't be number one in the ratings, beating March Madness of all things.harsh said:I see a situation where most wait for whatever it is to come out on disc or streaming service.
Most of the full episodes on AMC's website require provider authentication.The AMC stuff can be viewed on their website for those that want to keep up with the latest.
Said shows wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the network commissioning it and renewing it for new seasons.I'd much rather my support go to a show than a network that carries it.
