Dish customers to get live stream of 'Breaking Bad' premiere
Clever AMC - baiting the hook, as it were - will let Dish subscribers get a live stream of Sunday's "Breaking Bad" premiere. And of course once they see how good it is, they'll scream like heck for Dish to settle with AMC.
Press release details on jump...
In response to DISH’s recent drop of AMC to gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit, the network will provide DISH customers access to the highly anticipated return of the Emmy® Award-winning drama “Breaking Bad” on Sunday, July 15, at 10PM EST. AMC is offering a special live stream of “Breaking Bad’s” 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. 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.”
