AMC has just announced that they are offering a live stream of the Season 3 premiere for DISH subscribers:
New York, NY, September 28, 2012 – In response to DISH taking away its customers’ favorite scripted drama series on basic cable* – The Walking Dead – AMC is offering all DISH subscribers a special live stream of the hit show’s season three premiere episode on Sunday, October 14, at 9PM ET/6PM PT on amctv.com. This streaming event will run concurrently with the television debut so DISH subscribers who are fans of the series can experience this highly-anticipated premiere at the same time it’s available to all other cable and satellite subscribers.
Beginning Friday, September 28 at 9 AM ET, DISH subscribers can register for access to the free live stream of “The Walking Dead” at www.amctv.com/thewalkingdead4dish.
AMC stated: “To gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit, DISH has decided to deny their customers access to AMC shows including ‘The Walking Dead,’ the series that has shattered basic cable ratings records. Although ‘The Walking Dead’ is the #1 basic cable scripted drama for DISH customers, DISH has stated it has no plans to bring back AMC. DISH customers who want to watch the entire season at the same time as the rest of the country should switch television providers now…time is running out.”
DISH dropped AMC, as well as its sister networks, IFC, WE tv and Sundance Channel to gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit. DISH customers may find information on how to switch providers at www.switchfromdish.com.
