AMC TO LAUNCH FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE UK, EXCLUSIVELY FROM BT

Hi all

 

We’re pleased to announce that BT will launch the new AMC channel in the UK this September, and that this will be exclusive to BT customers.

 

AMC are a leading US cable network and this deal with BT will mark their channel debut here in the UK, launching with the highly anticipated drama ‘Fear of the Walking Dead’, on BT TV.

 

We’ll reveal more details soon.

 

Thanks

The question is, which packs will get access to it? I'm on the old £7.45 'Entertainment' pack, that comes with 20 Internet channels, but I'm willing to bet I won't be getting it without handing over more money. I reckon it'll only be available on 'Entertainment Plus' and above.

Looking at the channels US website I can see it only being offered in SD and HD. As there is no Ultra HD shows on the channel in the US.

I noticed this on the BT web pages

Clearly it is a web page geared to those taking the BT Sport package on Sky - so  a different scenario could exist for those taking BT TV on Youview

As a BT Sport subscriber on my Sky box this could be great news, i have BT Infinity, so for the £5 extra being charged for BT Sport Europe this might be a great little bonus to keep us all from thinking of leaving soon!

Is AMC still happening?  I can't find anywhere on current links on bt.com where it is still mentioned.
