So I was checking out my dvr schedule to see if the Walking Dead was scheduled to record, and low and behold Amc channels disappear from the Dishnetwork line up.

So like anyone I googled to see what was going on, and sure enough found this:

Dish Network's blackout of AMC Networks may last more than nine weeks.




Yet a month after the clock ran out on Dish and AMC Networks' carriage agreement — which laid out the price that Dish will pay AMC for content — neither company has stepped into the ring. The impasse proves that Dish's AMC blackout has little to do the cost of programming, and almost everything to do with an ongoing legal battle between the two companies.


tech.fortune.cnn.com...

So two companies fighting over money, and I don't get to watch one of my favorite tv shows of all time!

How rude those money grubing censored!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This bites!!!!!!!!!!

So does Dishnetwork!!!!!!!!

I get cable and AMC has been advertising for awhile that for those who get DISH they won't be able to watch it! Not sure of the politics that are involved in it though......

We were considering switching to Dish until this situation came about. Not only do they not have AMC but also several other channels including IFC- which I watch a lot.

I get mad at Time Warner all the time, but at least they always have everything I want to watch!

just watch it online.
Usually within 30 minutes of showing you can find it on projectfreetv.
Hope this helps, Falling Skies kicks a$$

AMC has a humorous announcement saying all those of us who do not have dish should invite our neighbors who do over to watch their programming. I watch Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels, etc. and would be pissed if I had Dish.

Oh that really stinks! I agree it is an awesome show. Will you try to watch it later from an online source? I know it isn't the same, especially when looking forward to a season premiere.

i watched this show for the first time this weekend at my folks house,and it just looks like
another (bad) premise for a soap opera type show!!!!
forgive me,i'm not a zombie fan!
but this show just reminded me of the young and the restless,with a few zombies
thrown in.
any way...NEXT!

I think AMC itself is going to allow you to view it online..Maybe only for tonight but I think I read somewhere that they are allowing people to view in real time online.

AMC

Also, look for small neighborhood theaters, especially if you have pub theater around your area. I know the one up the street from me will be showing the season.

LOL. Dish. Switch to Direct TV. Dish is garbage. You may pay more with Direct but at least you get quality. You get what you pay for

I have DirecTV….would you like me to tell you what happened?


DISH is probably being greedy and lowballing them. They have to be misers; that’s how they offer lower rates than DTV. I’m sure the “legal battle” has to do with the price they’re willing to pay…what else would it be?
