AMC+ Streaming Service Expands to Apple and Amazon, With No Cable Subscription Needed

Networks AMC, BBC America, IFC and SundanceTV go direct-to-consumer for first time

Key Insight

For the first time ever, consumers don’t need a cable subscription to watch AMC Networks channels including AMC, BBC America, IFC and SundanceTV.

AMC Networks has dramatically increased the footprint for AMC+, its expanded ad-free streaming service, which will be available today through Apple TV and Prime Video channels.

AMC+ features ad-free programming across AMC Networks’ entertainment networks, several of the company’s niche streaming services (Shudder, Sundance Now and IFC Films Unlimited), select AMC library shows (including all seven seasons of Mad Men) and early access to several AMC series before they air on linear TV.

The offering had previously been available as an add-on for Comcast, Dish and Sling TV subscribers, but AMC+ is now available to stream directly to the consumer, with no cable subscription necessary.
