Any Dish customers out there? AMC will be streaming the premiere of Breaking Bad for you
Any Dish customers pissed off that AMC got dropped? Wondering how the hell you're going to watch the premiere of BREAKING BAD? Well guess what-- AMC has the hook up for you.
Recently, AMC was dropped from Dish because of, as they put it, "to gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit". They continued to put the hurt on Dish by stating, "We know DISH has been urging AMC fans to pay additional monies to see their favorite shows online. It seems unusual to us for a television provider to ask their subscribers to pay extra money to see the same shows that they are already paying for, and that their neighbors are getting, as part of their basic TV subscriptions. The good news is every cable, phone and satellite company other than Dish carries AMC in its basic package and many providers are right now offering special incentives for people to switch and not miss Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels, The Walking Dead and other favorite programs."
Continuing to act like a boss, AMC decided to give Dish customers the chance to see the season five premiere of BREAKING BAD on their website. If you are one of the two million who have Dish, then head here to register in order to see the premiere. DirectTV took a hit yesterday as well when 17 channels under the Viacom umbrella were blacked out.
“Every cable, phone and satellite company other than Dish carries AMC,” the company says. “AMC wants its loyal Dish viewers to experience the excitement of the Breaking Bad premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbors, and we want to give Dish customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season.”
I believe that's a bingo. Stay strong Dish subscribers!
