AMC Working Around Dish Blackout by Providing Live Streams of Two Premieres NY Post, B&C
AMC Networks and Dish Network continue to battle each other, with AMC announcing that it will provide live streams of two premieres to Dish customers, enabling them to watch the shows despite a blackout on Dish's systems, reports the New York Post.
The shows are "Hell on Wheels" and "Braxton Family Values," with the premieres airing Aug. 12 and Aug. 16, respectively, according to B&C. Dish subscribers can access the streams by registering at these links: amctv.com/hellonwheels4dish and wetv.com/bfv-for-dish
It's not the first time AMC has worked around the blackout on Dish's systems. The cable network offered a live stream of "Breaking Bad" for its fifth-season premiere last month.
“We’ve heard from many Dish subscribers who are upset about missing our programming so we are giving them an opportunity to watch these premiere episodes at the same time as the rest of the country," AMC said in a statement.
