AMC sticks it to Dish Network by offering subscribers Breaking Bad Season 5 premierePosted 9:44 am on Thursday, July 12th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Now if you’re a fan of AMC’s Breaking Bad and a subscriber of the Dish Network, you’re probably wondering how you’re going to watch the Season 5 premiere on Sunday, July 15, at 10PM EST. Don’t fret, because AMC has the solution for you. They are offering subscribers access to a “special” live stream of the premiere at amctv.com.
AMC has some popular TV shows like The Walking Dead, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad with millions of viewers. The Dish Network is a Satellite provider with millions of subscribers. Subscribers who are fans of the AMC Network aren’t too pleased with Dish Network’s decision of dropping the channel.
To get a chance to watch the Season 5 premiere of Breaking Bad, you can start registering at www.amctv.com/breakingbad4dish starting 3pm ET on Friday, July 13th. Dish is currently the only provider that doesn’t have the AMC channel.
AMC stated: “Every cable, phone and satellite company other than DISH carries AMC and its popular programming, including “Breaking Bad,” “The Walking Dead,” and “Mad Men,” in their basic package. 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.”
