Dish Subscribers Will Have Access to Breaking Bad Premiere
At the end of last month, Dish Network dropped AMC from its service. However, all is not lost for fans of AMC’s Breaking Bad. The network is making the season 5 premiere of Breaking Bad available via a live stream at www.amctv.com/breakingbad4dish. Dish customers will be able to register for access to the live stream beginning today at 3pm. The live stream will begin this Sunday at 10pm, which is the same time Breaking Bad will begin its fifth season on AMC.
Sundance, IFC, and WE tv are also affected by Dish Networks decision to drop AMC. In response to Dish dropping its channels, AMC told The Hollywood Reporter, “Dish claims to put its customers first yet they’ve taken away Dish viewers’ favorite scripted drama series, AMC’s The Walking Dead. Dish dropped our networks not because of ratings or rates. In fact, Dish has not discussed rates with us at all. Dish customers have lost some of their favorite shows, because of an unrelated lawsuit, which has nothing at all to do with our programming.”
No word yet on whether AMC Networks will give Dish subscribers access to shows from its other channels.
