    AMC had a scroll at bottom of screen saying it was effective 6-18-12.

    Bet Breaking Bad fans that get Dish are bummed.

    Why I always have stuck with cable over Dish and Direct TV. The latter 2 don't even carry the local TV stations.

    AMC was moved to 9006-9010 or somewhere close to that. I still get it.

    Direct TV carries local channels in my area.

    Fuck Dish
    :lol:

    Back when I had them it was $5 more to carry locals......wtf????
    Then they started dropping networks.

    DirecTV wrestled over FX for a while but other then that everything's been cool with them

    :thup:

    Maybe Dish and AMC resoved their differences at the last moment.

    Just telling what I saw: AMC repeatedly having a scroll message June 17 at bottom of screen saying Dish was dumping them.

    AMC used to show classic movies uncut with no ads.

    TCM stepped in and filled that void.
