Just like they did with 'Breaking Bad,' AMC is making an effort to lure customers away from DISH.
AMC wants viewers. DISH doesn't carry AMC. As a result, AMC doesn't much care for DISH. In order to let potential viewers get a taste of what they're missing and lure them away from DISH, AMC is offering a free live stream of their hit show 'The Walking Dead' to any DISH customer.
The episode airs on October 14th, but you can register to watch the show now. AMC does check to see if you're a DISH customer or not before you get access to the stream, which means the rest of us are out of luck on the streaming front. Of course, the rest of us probably have AMC, so it works out.
