Premier Drops AMC After Surveying Customers

Over the past several weeks we have been surveying our Cable TV customers, asking if Premier should keep AMC on the channel lineup. Despite negotiating an agreement with AMC, and AMC coming down slightly from their initial demands, they were still demanding a large increase in the cost to show their channel. We wanted to know what you, our customers, thought about keeping or dropping AMC.

For all of you that took the survey – thank you! With more than 1,400 responses. An overwhelming majority – 87%, both do not watch AMC at all, and would like Premier to drop the channel. You’ve spoken, and we are listening, which is why, as of FEBRUARY 1, Premier will be dropping AMC from our Cable TV lineup.

For those that watch ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ and other AMC shows, you can watch the shows online via:

  1. Amazon Prime –  under “shop by department”, choose “Amazon video”
  2. Google Play
  3. iTunes – (must have an iPhone, iPad or PC/Mac Computer)
  4. Xbox store – use your xbox gaming console
  5. Vudu

For those that enjoy the western movies:

You can easily add the Starz&Encore package to your CATV lineup. Included in that package is Encore Western, a channel that features old and new western movies, many are the same as what AMC would run, with the addition of many more. Call our office at 800-741-8351 for pricing on this package.

For those that enjoy the general movie reruns:

Channels, FX and FXX run many of the same movies AMC would run.

For those that participated in the customer survey – thank you for your response, we value our customers’ feedback.
