AMC Networks July 20 announced an agreement with Dish Network that will make its AMC Plus SVOD service available on Dish’s online TV platform Sling TV.
Launched in June, AMC Plus ($6.99 monthly) affords subscribers access to all AMC Networks programming, including “The Walking Dead” and “Better Call Saul,” among others.
The Sling deal is the second carriage agreement following AMC Plus’ initial availability on Comcast Cable’s Xfinity and broadband-only Flex platforms. Sling introduced the online TV market in 2015.
AMC Plus bundle also includes series from AMC, IFC and Sundance TV, Shudder, Sundance Now, IFC Films Unlimited, which offers a collection of theatrically released titles from IFC Films, among other sources.
“This new bundle, available for the first time to Dish and Sling TV customers, was designed to offer fans of our programming greater choice and an enhanced customer experience, as we work with Dish and Sling TV to embrace the new ways in which viewers consume content today,” Josh Reader, president of distribution and development at AMC Networks, said in a statement.
