AMC unveils BT content plans for UK launch

AMC Global and BT have revealed a selection of TV series and movies to premiere on AMC with the channel’s first ever launch in the UK on 28th August.

Among the exclusive content is ‘Fear the Walking Dead’, a companion series to global hit ‘The Walking Dead’ (the #1 show on US TV among adults 18-49).  The first episode will be made available free of charge to all audiences on the BT Showcase Channel (Freeview channel 59) as well as premiering on AMC from BT (BT TV channel 381 in HD and 332 in SD) on 31st August at 9:00 pm.

“BT customers will soon have exclusive access to some of the most anticipated new original series and movies as part of AMC’s launch later this week,” comments Delia Bushell, Managing Director, BT TV & BT Sport. “We’re looking forward to showcasing the most compelling new content from one of the world’s most celebrated TV channels for audiences in the months ahead.”

The AMC from BT channel will be available for free to all BT TV and BT Sport Pack subscribers. Customers do not need to take any action to receive the channel – it will automatically be added.
