AMC OFFERS DISH SUBSCRIBERS LIVE STREAM OF Breaking Bad SEASON FIVE PREMIERE
by TeamTVWriter Press Service
And now, because TVWriter™ loves its BREAKING BAD fans (and there are so damn many of you), here’s today’s not-so-sneaky tip on how to get past DISH’s recent dropping of AMC channels to gain leverage in an ongoing lawsuit.
Seems that AMC itself will give DISH customers access to the Emmy® winning drama on Sunday, July 15, at 10PM EST via a special live stream of the season five premiere to all DISH subscribers on amctv.com.
Beginning at 3 PM ET on Friday, July 13, DISH subscribers can register for access to the live stream at www.amctv.com/breakingbad4dish.
According to AMC (and who are we to argue?), “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.”
Wait, there’s more: “Created by writer- producer-director Vince Gilligan and produced by Sony Pictures Television, the critically acclaimed series has garnered six Primetime Emmy® Award wins and a Peabody, and been named to the American Film Institute’s (AFI) list of the “Top 10 Programs of the Year” (2008, 2010, 2011).”
Here at TVWriter™ we’re definitely on AMC’s side in this fight. We mean, how can you not take up arms for people who can use the word “garnered” in an announcement and still take themselves seriously?
