AMC Offering DISH Customers Free Live Stream Of 'The Walking Dead' Season Premiere

Courtesey AMC TV
Earlier this year, AMC was dropped by DISH during very public contract negotiations.  This meant that fans of Mad Men, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Hell On Wheels were out of luck.  They would have to resort to other means to watch their favorite shows.  With the third season premiere of The Walking Dead coming up, many of them are frustrated again.  AMC wants to help those fans.

When the new season begins on October 17th, DISH customers will be able to watch the season premiere...but not on their TV's.  AMC is offering a live stream of the premiere - for FREE - online.  Here is what AMC says about this offer:

New York, NY, September 28, 2012 – In response to DISH taking away its customers’ favorite scripted drama series on basic cable* – The Walking Dead - AMC is offering all DISH subscribers a special live stream of the hit show’s season three premiere episode on Sunday, October 14, at 9PM ET/6PM PT on  This streaming event will run concurrently with the television debut so DISH subscribers who are fans of the series can experience this highly-anticipated premiere at the same time it’s available to all other cable and satellite subscribers.

You do have to register online to take part in this event.  Head to to get yourself set up for the event.

It's a pretty brilliant move on AMC's part to offer this.  It's a great way to get DISH customers to jump ship by reminding them of the awesomeness they are missing.

And just in case you need a reminder of how freakn' awesome The Walking Dead is, here is a teaser for season 3.

What are you waiting for??  Go and register for the online stream of the season premiere.

What say you?
